Jones has been diagnosed with stage-one bile duct cancer. The good news is that it was caught early and Sharon is expected to make a full recovery. However, the surgery she will endure will require a long period of convalescence.” Reply Yes, I saw that … and, on Oct 9th, they announced this: “This past spring, Daptone Records had just announced the August release of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ Give the People What They Want when Sharon Jones was diagnosed with cancer. The scheduled release and supporting tours were immediately put on hold and all efforts were quickly shifted to her treatment and recovery. It brings great joy and relief to announce that after a successful operation, ongoing treatment, and the continued support and love of friends, family, and fans, Sharon Jones is back. Give the People What They Want is scheduled to drop January 14th, 2014, followed by Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ triumphant return to the stage on February 6th at the Beacon Theater in New York City, their first show in nearly a year.” Which is wonderful news, because I’m a big fan, and I’m glad that Sharon Jones’s treatment went well!
