TMZ has revealed that Elton checked into L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital early yesterday morning.
He has a serious respiratory infection, which has temporarily derailed his concerts.
The composer underwent a battery of tests, after which doctors recommended that he not perform for 7 days. He was told he needed “complete rest and antibiotic treatment to prevent damage.”
Elton had to cancel 4 events scheduled this weekend in Las Vegas.
The singer, who has reportedly left the hospital, told TMZ, “It feels strange not to be able to perform these Million Dollar Piano concerts at the Colosseum … I love performing the show and I will be thrilled when we return to the Colosseum in October to complete the 11 concerts.”
Elton added, “All I can say to the fans is ‘sorry I can’t be with you.”
EJW hopes he feels much better soon.
