A serious respiratory infection has forced Elton John to cancel several of his “Million Dollar Piano” concerts at The Colosseum in Las Vegas, his rep announced Thursday. John, 65, was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital Wednesday for treatment.
According to a post on John’s official website, concerts set for Thursday, May 24; Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 27 are canceled. “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 hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles at 6:00 a.m. Wednesday, May 23, where he remained throughout the day for extensive tests. Those tests resulted in the attending Cedars-Sinai physician recommending that Elton not perform any concerts for approximately seven days with complete rest and antibiotic treatment to cure his respiratory infection and prevent any damage,” the post reads.
John apologized to fans in a statement. "It feels strange not to be able to perform these 'Million Dollar Piano' concerts at The Colosseum. 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,” he said. “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."
