An Unwell Elton Cancels 4th Show
Elton John's concert at the Echo Arena tomorrow (Wednesday 28th October) has been postponed.
On what would have been the final night of his spectacular UK tour, doctors have told Elton his symptoms have not improved significantly enough for him to perform. Due to ill health the pop legend has also been forced to cancel his Sheffield, Newcastle and London gigs.
The 62-year-old star, famous for hits including Your Song, Rocket Man, and Don't Let the Sun go Down on Me was set to finish touring the show Red Piano at the arena tomorrow.
The show began in Las Vegas, The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, 5 years ago and ran there for an incredible 243 performances, in front of approximately 1 million people.
Concert promoters, Marshall Arts, are in talks with the venue to try and re-schedule the Echo Arena concert for a suitable and available date in December 2009.
A spokesperson for Marshall Arts added that they are continuing to try to include re-scheduling the Sheffield, Newcastle and London shows which regrettably had to be postponed.
Ticket holders are asked to retain their tickets. Further announcements regarding the replacement dates will be made later this week.
