A Monday, June 3, 2013, news release says Jones has stage-one bile duct cancer and needs immediate surgery. Jones and her band had planned to release “Give the People What They Want” on Aug. 6 and were already touring.

The singer was forced to miss a few shows recently while looking for a cause of her illness. The release says doctors caught the tumor early and the cancer has not spread. They expect the 57-year-old to make a full recovery. (AP Photo/Dave Martin, file)
