According to a statement on his websiteÂ the veteranÂ songwriter and performer has been diagnosed with influenza and a virulent form E.Coli Bacterial infection.
Under Doctor's advice the 62 year old has canceled 3 shows in America with Billy Joel in their Elton John and Billy Joel Face To Face concerts for early this month.
According to promoter, Live Nation, new dates for the concerts will hopefully be established soon. Anyone who has tickets for the canceled dates are being asked to hold on to them until new proposed dates are finalised for rescheduled concerts.
Elton has already canceled concerts on his Red Piano tour in Dublin, Newcastle, London, Sheffield and Liverpool after he first came down with influenza and those dates are also to be rescheduled.
Elton John's Partner, David Furnish, who has spent the past 2 days at Elton's side saidÂ "He's OK, He's fine" as he left the King Edward VII hospital in London.
Talents of this calibre are very few and very far between. Elton has entertained the world and is a true English icon. We at The Economic Voice wish him a very speedy recovery.
