"The spirit has been more than willing, but I have to now accept that it is going to take longer than I would have wished for me to recover my full strength," the statement said.

He vowed to "return at the soonest opportunity."

The cancelled concerts were in Britain, Croatia, Austria, Norway and Sweden.

Costello, whose hits include Alison and Pump it Up , urged men to go to their doctors if they had symptoms they were

worried about.

The singer has one date planned for Canada — a show at Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth Theatre in December.
