music news 26/04/2017

Earlier in the week Elton John revealed he was forced to cancel his upcoming tour dates for the next month due to a health scare.

It was reported that he was hospitalised after contracting a rare, bacterial infection. He became violently ill, and many have reported that the infection has been known to be deadly in some cases.

He spent a few days in intensive care at a UK hospital but now is resting at home and released a brief statement to apologize to fans for cancelling the dates.

I am so fortunate to have the most incredible and loyal fans and apologise for disappointing them. I am extremely grateful to the medical team for their excellence in looking after me so well.

He later thanked all his fans on Insatgram for all the well wishes sent.
