Lloyd Webber back in hospital after cancer op

Author: By Vicky Shaw, Press Association

A statement on the theatre impresario’s website said that although the
operation was a success, the infection needs immediate treatment.

His spokesmen said last month that the cancer was in its early stages and he
hoped to return to work before the end of the year.

But an update on his website said he now hoped to be back in the New Year.

The statement, placed there last night, said: “Andrew has been re-admitted to
hospital tonight following his operation for prostate cancer.

“He has been advised that while the operation was entirely successful, he has
developed a post-operative ‘chronic infection’ which needs immediate
treatment. He still hopes to be back at work in the New Year.”

Lord Lloyd-Webber, 61, is best known for his musicals, which include Joseph
And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita,
Starlight Express and The Phantom Of The Opera.

Last month, the composer launched the long-awaited sequel to Phantom, Love
Never Dies, at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London. The new musical is scheduled
to open in March.

Phantom, which has been seen by some 100 million people worldwide, opened 23
years ago.

Prostate cancer affects around 35,000 men in the UK each year and kills just
over 10,000.

The disease is the most common cancer in British men, accounting for a quarter
of all new cases.
