Elton Leaves Hospital - Aims to be Back on Nov 14
British singer Elton John left hospital on Thursday after being treated for a serious case of e-coli bacterial infection and influenza that forced him to cancel a string of concerts, his representative said on Thursday.
Spokesman Gary Farrow said the pop star known for hits including "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" and "Rocket Man" was "fine", and he planned to join singer/songwriter Billy Joel on stage on Nov. 14.
John, 62, was forced to postpone five gigs in England and Ireland starting with an Oct. 23 date in Sheffield, and he also pulled out of three U.S. concerts scheduled for November 4, 7 and 10, at which he was to appear with Joel.
