Elton John Hospitalized For Respiratory Infection

Elton John has cancelled three Las Vegas shows after being hospitalized on Wednesday (May 23). The legendary singer was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after developing a serious respiratory infection last weekend while performing at Caesar’s Palace. After extensive tests, John was instructed not to perform for another week so he could undergo treatment.

“It feels strange not to be able to perform these ‘Million Dollar Piano’ concerts at The Colosseum,” the 65-year-old “Tiny Dancer” artist 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.”
