Elton John Cancels Three Shows

Elton John has been forced to cancel three of his shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, due to a respiratory infection. Two of the shows were scheduled during the Memorial Day Weekend and unfortunately, Elton John needs a break.

Several published reports along with a posting on Elton John’s official website confirm that he has been suffering from a serious respiratory infection that he has not been able to shake since his May 20th performance at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

As the week went on, Elton John’s condition worsened, and he was forced to be admitted into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles early Wednesday morning. He underwent a battery of tests, and the attending physician recommended that he not perform for a week to treat his infection with antibiotics.

Elton John expressed in a statement “It feels strange not to be able to perform these ‘Million Dollar Piano’ concerts at the Colosseum. 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. I hope to see you soon at this wonderful theatre at Caesars Palace.”

In the meantime, ticket holders for the shows that have been cancelled can get a refund or exchange their tickets.
