Elton John Postpones Summer Concert to Undergo Surgery


Elton John


The 'Rocket Man' hitmaker has been diagnosed with appendicitis and is expected to go under the knife soon.

Elton John is not feeling well and has to take a hiatus from performing. After "a number of exploratory scans and blood tests with his medical team in the UK," the British singer/songwriter was diagnosed with "appendix abscess surrounding retrocaecal appendicitis."

Sir Elton is forced to hold back the remaining dates from his current European tour, including the headline show at Hyde Park in London as part of the Barclaycard British Summer Time Festival this coming Friday, to go under the knife and recover after the surgery.

"Elton is incredibly disappointed to postpone these tour dates. To know that he made such super-human efforts and continued to perform to thousands through his illness only confirms his dedication to his European fans. He is eager to be back on top form and return to play the remaining shows starting in early September 2013," his rep says.

He is currently undergoing "a course of intensive antibiotics" to reduce "toxins within the inflamed appendicitis site," before undergoing the surgery.
