(Radio.com) Elton John will not be able to continue his current European tour for the time being, due to appendicitis. A statement posted to the singer's official site explained that John had called doctors in the midst of his tour through Europe, with the medical team discovering an inflamed appendix and a surrounding abscess.

In response, John canceled his forthcoming sets at Italy's Collisioni Festival and London's Barclaycard British Summer Time this week, as well as a show in Germany, while he treats the appendicitis with antibiotics.

Afterward, as advised by doctors, he will undergo surgery, which will him off the touring grid for other dates on his tour, which included additional festival dates in Spain, Monaco and France.

"Elton is incredibly disappointed to postpone these tour dates," John's rep said in the statement. "To know that he made such super-human efforts and continued to perform to thousands through his illness only confirms his dedication to his European fans. He is eager to be back on top form and return to play the remaining shows starting in early September 2013." more on this story
