Elton John Cancels Vegas Performances Due to Serious Respiratory Infection

by at . Comments

First, Ray J. Now, Elton John. Is no legendary singer safe?!?

The multiple-time Emmy Award winner was hospitalized yesterday with a "serious respiratory infection," according to his official website. As a result, John has been forced to cancel the remaining performances of "The Million Dollar Piano," his ongoing Las Vegas show.

Following various tests at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, John was told by physicians to take a week of rest and antibiotics to "cure his respiratory infection and prevent any damage," the statement reads.

"It feels strange not to be able to perform these 'Million Dollar Piano' concerts at the Colosseum," John himself says. "I love performing this show and I will be thrilled when we return. All I can say to the fans is sorry I can't be with you."

Elton will come back to Sin City in October, but departs on June 1 for a summer tour in Europe.

Pneumonia probably. One of the most common HIV opportunistic infections. Same as George Michael last year. Just keep taking your Anti-RetroVirals Elton & you will be fine.
