Elton John Cancels Tour For Medical Reasons
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
