Throat Infection Forces Elton John to Cancel Las Vegas Shows


Elton John


The 65-year-old singer is under his doctors' order to rest for at least seven days or else his throat infection will get worse.

Elton John is forced to cancel his performances at the Colosseum in Las Vegas after doctor told him his respiratory infection could get worse if he continues. The singer has developed the illness last weekend and was hospitalized on Wednesday, May 23 at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after a series of tests.

Doctors ordered John not to perform for approximately seven days, meaning he had to cancel Thursday, Saturday and Sunday performances. Ticket holders will get refunds at the point of purchase. The 65-year-old singer is now subject to rest and antibiotic treatment.

"It feels strange not to be able to perform these 'Million Dollar Piano' concerts at The Colosseum," John said in a statement. "I love performing this show and I will be thrilled when we return to The Colosseum in October to complete the eleven concerts soon to be scheduled. All I can say to the fans is sorry I can't be with you. I hope to see you soon at this wonderful theatre at Caesars Palace."

John is scheduled to return to Las Vegas in October.
