Elton John was forced to cancel four concerts due to a serious respiratory infection. John was hospitalized on Wednesday and now Las Vegas fans will miss out on the music-making legend.
John checked into the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. at 6 on Wednesday morning, where he underwent several tests. The doctors recommended that he take a 7-day break from performing because he needed “complete rest and antibiotic treatment to prevent damage.”
As a result, the singer had to cancel four concerts scheduled in Las Vegas this upcoming weekend, and he already misses performing.
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.’
John has been released from the hospital to recover in privacy.
