Elton John In Hospital-Cancels Vegas Shows
Hope Sir Elton John gets better. He was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital after contracting a "serious respiratory infection" over the weekend during his weekly Las Vegas performances of "The Million Dollar Piano" show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The performer has been doing these shows for a little over a year, and will resume in October.
Here's the full story from the LA Times "Elton John has 'serious infection,' cancels Vegas gigs" The story goes on to say "his doctor recommended he take a week off for rest and to treat the infection with antibiotics. He was later released.
As a result, John will cancel three performances scheduled for Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at Caesar's Palace."
Get better Elton! Here's Sir Elton in better times during his show in Kalamazoo the past spring.
