Psychic TV tour dates have been canceled so Genesis can start treatment.

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has been diagnosed with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. The co-founder of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV is set to undergo treatment starting this Monday. A note on Facebook disclosed the diagnosis and a cancelation of Psychic TV tour dates in Europe:

“We begin serious treatments next week on Monday 23rd( of course) so, if you have ways you focus your loving energies and care to share a little with me. We’d be honoured…the immediate and terribly disappointing result is the Psychic TV/PTV3 detour of Europe due to begin this Sunday 22nd has had to be very reluctantly postponed…we have to agree with my medical experts, my amazing fellow band members, my two daughters Caresse and Genesse, and my chosen extended famille who so lovingly surround me that working on making me strong and fit once more has to be the only sensible priority. We kept hoping we’d be OK but today heard the illness has got worse this week. My sincere, oh so sad apologies for all of you who bought tickets, were excited to share time, space, loving ideas and celebrations with us in all those cities.”

The note also discloses that Genesis had been hospitalized another time prior to the ER trip that led to the diagnosis. Read the statement in full below.
