The Asia frontman will undergo his first session tomorrow, after he confirmed in May that he’d been diagnosed with cancer and had surgery to remove a tumour.

Wetton, 66, says in a tweet: “I start chemo tomorrow. I urge everyone to be checked for cancer regularly, because cancer growth is rapid – and before you know it, agonising.”

In May he extended this thanks to doctors after his surgery was declared a success. Messages of support can be sent to jw@qedg.co.uk.
