Elton John forced to cancel shows after health scare

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.
