A source told The Sun: “Tom has been vocal that he doesn’t think the options available in Britain are perfect so he’s trying elsewhere.

“The tour means so much to him, he cannot wait.

“The cancer treatment he goes through takes it out of him so it’s been good to go abroad and relax.”

Tom’s cancer battle

Tom revealed in October 2020 that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma.

At the time, his brain tumour was classified as inoperable and “terminal”.

But following six rounds of chemotherapy and 30 radiotherapy sessions, Tom explained that the tumour is now “under control”.

The dad-of-two shared the update during an appearance on Loose Women.

He told the panel: “Stable, yeah! It’s pretty unheard of at this point. Really over the moon and very grateful.”

In addition, the musician also spoke about the need for better treatments in the UK.

Tom added: “Our new mission in life is to better the treatment for cancer, it’s appalling at the moment.

“Don’t get me wrong, we are fortunate. But there is better treatment out there, I would like to advocate for better treatment.”

Meanwhile, earlier this month, Tom turned to his fans for support in a powerful post on Instagram.
