Olivia Newton-John puts tour on hold after breast cancer diagnosis | Music | The Guardian

The singer recovered from breast cancer 25 years ago and has devoted herself to helping others with the disease ever since.Last week, she cancelled planned meet-and-greet events for the upcoming concerts because of “severe back pain”.A statement posted on Facebook said: “Olivia Newton-John is reluctantly postponing her June US and Canadian concert tour dates.“The back pain that initially caused her to postpone the first half of her concert tour has turned out to be breast cancer that has metastasised to the sacrum.“In addition to natural wellness therapies, Olivia will complete a short course of photon radiation therapy and is confident she will be back later in the year, better than ever, to celebrate her shows.”Newton-John said: “I decided on my direction of therapies after consultation with my doctors and natural therapists and the medical team at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne.”
