Elvis Costello needs to take some time off.

The post-punk icon was forced to cancel the rest of his European summer tour so he can recover from his recent surgery for a "small but very aggressive" cancerous tumor.

The 63-year-old musician broke the news to fans on Friday, revealing that he's been "strongly advised" to take a break from his touring schedule and rest.

Denzel To Host Nobel Peace Prize Concert

Pretty impressive, Denzel. Definitely a step up from hosting the Teen Choice Awards (Sorry, Katy Perry!)

Denzel Washington will host the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway, on Dec 11, with support from a lineup of artists, including Florence and the Machine, Colbie Caillat, Herbie Hancock, and Elvis Costello.

Here's what Denzel had to say about his honor:

"I am honored to attend the Nobel Peace Prize Concert this year and participate in this historic and momentous event to help spread the message of global peace."

Here's what Geir Lundestad, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, had to say about Denzel:

"We're thrilled to have Mr. Washington join us to host this year's Nobel Peace Prize Concert. He is the perfect ambassador for this event, which celebrates peace through music and illuminates the notable contributions of the Nobel laureate."

The 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced in Oslo on Oct. 8, and the award will be handed out on Dec. 10 as always, which marks the anniversary of prize founder Alfred Nobel's death in 1896.
