Elton's Still Sick - Oakland Postponed
The sold-out "Face 2 Face" concert, starring Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Elton John and Billy Joel show, scheduled for Saturday at Oracle Arena in Oakland has been postponed. The change was made to allow John to recover from illness.
The 62-year-old John has been battling a serious case of e-coli bacterial infection and influenza and been advised by his doctor to postpone this Oakland concert, according to promoter Live Nation.
Organizers are working to set a make-up date for the concert. All ticket-holders are being asked to hold on to their tickets until more information is available regarding the proposed rescheduled engagement.
The two piano men are still set to appear Tuesday at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. Tickets are still available for that performance.
