"After the last seven years of incredible life, I would have never believed that my body would be invaded by another cancer", he said. After he was hospitalized in August for an E.coli infection, Rodgers said doctors discovered a "mysterious growth on [his] right kidney" that proved to be "two different cancers within one mass".

Not one to slow down, he continued touring through the end of 2017, and following his last show, he "flew directly from Brooklyn, to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY".

Rodgers was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer in 2010, but was given the all clear three years later. Since then, he said, he had "attacked life with gusto" and "worked at an insane level". The following day I had surgery to remove the carcinogenic mass - and my prognosis is 100% recovery. Now in a blog post titled "CANCER REALLY?"

"What will happen next year is beyond any of my wildest dreams", he teased, promising to reveal more in his next blog post.

The singer is set to appear alongside his band Chic in central London on New Year's Eve after performing at Glastonbury this year.
