“Thank you for all your thoughts during this difficult time,” the composer added. Nick’s death comes a week after Webber released a statment on March 18, revealing his son was “critically ill” with gastric cancer. At that time he stated he was “absolutely devasted” about his diagnosis.

“As my friends and family know, he has been fighting gastric cancer for the last 18 months and Nick is now hospitalized,” Andrew revealed last week. “I, therefore, have not been able to attend the recent previews of Bad Cinderella and as things stand, I will not be able to cheer on its wonderful cast, crew and orchestra on opening night this Thursday.”

“We are all praying that Nick will turn the corner,” the legend continued. “He is bravely fighting with his indomitable humor, but at the moment my place is with him and the family.”

He had given an update on his son’s health via a video that was posted on his Instagram on March 23rd.  “I wanted to thank you, first, for the huge outpouring of messages of support for my son, Nick. He’s now been moved into hospice and he’s battling away,” he stated.

“I think he’s over the worst of this first bout of pneumonia he’s got as a result of his cancer, which is just ghastly,” the father of five noted. “But we’re all here and the family here has gathered around, and it was the right place for us all to be, I think.”

Nick was a Grammy-nominated composer and was recognized for his exceptional work in composing scores for various projects such as the BBC One series Love, Lies and Records, the film The Last Bus, and the short film Mr. Invisible. He received a Grammy nomination for his outstanding contribution in the original cast album of Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella in 2021.
