Singer Elton John has canceled performances after landing in the hospital with what is being described as a serious respiratory infection, EW.com reports. The performer canceled three Las Vegas concerts scheduled for this weekend, the story reports.
John first came down with the illness while performing last weekend at Caesars Palace in Vegas. After his condition worsened he checked into a Los Angeles hospital Wednesday, the story says. Doctors are recommending he not perform for seven days in order to rest.
“I love performing this show and I will be thrilled when we return to The Colosseum in October to complete the 11 concerts soon to be scheduled. All I can say to the fans is sorry I can’t be with you," John said in a statement.
