#Showbiz: Michael Bolton reveals brain cancer diagnosis

KUALA LUMPUR: Popular 1990s singer Michael Bolton has revealed that he was diagnosed with a brain tumour late last year.

The Independent reported that the Grammy-winning 70-year-old who has sold more than 75 million records worldwide said on Instagram that he underwent "immediate surgery" and was recuperating.

Bolton said: "Just before the holidays, it was discovered that I had a brain tumour, which required immediate surgery. Thanks to my incredible medical team, the surgery was a success. I am now recuperating at home and surrounded by the tremendous love and support of my family."

Bolton added: "For the next couple of months, I will be devoting my time and energy to my recovery which means I will have to take a temporary break from touring. It is always the hardest thing for me to ever disappoint my fans or postpone a show, but have no doubt I am working hard to accelerate my recovery and get back to performing soon.

"I am beyond grateful for all the love and support you have so generously shown me through the years. Know that I am keeping your positive messages in my heart, and I will give you more updates as soon as I can."

Last year, Bolton released Spark Of Light, his first album of original songs co-written by him in almost 15 years.
