Earlier this year Olivia, 69, announced she would be postponing her North American tour after her breast cancer returned.

In a statement posted to her Facebook account, Olivia told fans she would be back "better than ever" and was "reluctantly" postponing the run of shows when it was found that the cause of her recent "back pain" was diagnosed as breast cancer.

She admitted that breaking the news to her daughter, Chloe, about her second bout of cancer was extremely difficult.
