Elton John checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday after falling ill to a serious respiratory infection.
John underwent a series of test, and was told he needed “complete rest and antibiotic to prevent damage” before being released from the hospital, forcing him to cancel this week’s upcoming shows in Las Vegas.
The singer told TMZ, “It feels strange not to be able to perform these Million Dollar Piano concerts at the Colosseum… I love performing the show and I will be thrilled when we return to the Colosseum in October to complete the 11 concerts.”
“All I can say to the fans is, ‘Sorry I can’t be with you.'”
No doubt it will create a dilemma for those who traveled to Vegas to see John perform this week, but it’s good to hear he’s planning to make the shows up in the fall.
