Elton John Cancels Shows After Being Hospitalized for 'Unusual' Infection

Elton John has reportedly canceled all of his Las Vegas performances through May due to an illness that required hospitalization.

When flying home from Chile after the 70-year-old singer’s South American tour, he reportedly developed a rare bacterial infection and became “violently ill,” according to the statement from Rogers and Cowan released on Monday (April 24),

Elton was sent to the hospital after landing back in U.K. and remained in intensive care for two nights.

He was released from the hospital on Saturday and is currently “comfortably resting at home per doctor’s advice.”

Elton is expected to make a full recovery and will hopefully be able to continue with his performances on June 3 in Twickenham, England.

“I am so fortunate to have the most incredible and loyal fans and apologise for disappointing them,” Elton said in a statement. “I am extremely grateful to the medical team for their excellence in looking after me so well.”
