UK Singer Joe Longthorne is Back Performing

British singer Joe Longthorne is back performing this weekend after a one year absence from the stage through illness that left him fighting for his life. The star spent months in the hospital after setbacks following a bone marrow transplant at Manchester Royal Infirmary. The singer was first diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma(NHL) in 1989. He believed he had been given the all-clear in 1997, but the cancer returned.

His official website said the 50-year-old, who has fought NHL for years, has been "feeling much stronger and with every day that passes a little more excited that he will be performing again". He will be performing at the Grand Theatre, Blackpool, Easter Day for the first night of his 2006 UK tour, in what should prove a special and emotional night for his many loyal fans. The tour includes several Yorkshire venues, Sheffield and Bradford in May, Leeds in June and finally his home city in July.
