Sir Elton John Hospitalised For 'Serious Respiratory Infection'


Recommended Posts

Elton John has been taken to hospital after being struck with a 'serious respiratory infection.'

According to TMZ, the Rocket Man hitmaker arrived at the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles yesterday (24th May), where Elton underwent "extensive tests."

The BBC reports that the 65-year old has since left hospital, but he's been forced to cancel three shows due to take place at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas this weekend.

Doctors are thought to have advised Elton not to perform for a seven days, stating he needs "complete rest and antibiotic treatment to prevent damage".

His publicist Fran Curtis said in a statement: "Elton developed a serious respiratory infection last weekend while performing at The Colosseum on Sunday, May 20.

"This week the condition worsened, even with medication and rest, resulting in Elton being hospitalised."

Elton later issued an apology to concert-goers, stating: "All I can say to the fans is 'sorry I can't be with you'.

"I love performing the show and I will be thrilled when we return to the Colosseum in October to complete the 11 concerts.


Hope he gets well soon :(
