Ugh. One small victory for MCA + Beastie Boys, one temporary setback for Fenech-Soler.
Over the weekend, it was announced on Fenech-Soler's website that singer Ben Duffy was recently diagnosed with testicular cancer. The silver lining to the diagnosis is that it's at an early stage and the physicians involved believe he will make a swift recovery after treatment. However, since Ben will need to do a round of chemotherapy, their current UK tour has subsequently been postponed until he is back on his feet.
Tickets will still be valid for the postponed shows once new dates are announced. Doctors believe he will be in tip top shape in time for a slew of summer festival gigs that have been announced already, including Lovebox, Bestival, Camp Bestival, Parklife, Ibiza Rocks, Pukkelpop and Oxegen.
Cancer totally sucks. Ben, here's to a swift recovery, friend. KICK CANCER'S SORRY ASS!
