Eddie Money Reveals He Has Cancer

In July, Money cancelled the remainder of his 2019 concerts – including one in Grand Forks, BC on Aug. 9 – due to pneumonia he contracted which recovering in hospital from a heart valve procedure.

In May, he told fans he was having the surgery after complaining about shortness of breath.

“I look forward to getting back win stage and rockin’ with you all,” he said in a statement at the time.

Money has released a dozen studio albums since 1977 and is known for hits like “Two Tickets to Paradise” and “Walk on Water.”
