Elton John Rushed to Hospital, Vegas Shows Cancelled

SIR Elton John has been taken to hospital with a serious respiratory infection and forced to cancel a number of concerts.

The 65-year-old British singer was admitted to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital at 6.00am local time on Wednesday and was told by doctors that he must cancel four concerts this weekend in Las Vegas in order to rest.

Following a series of tests, the "Rocket Man" star was told he needed "complete rest and antibiotic treatment to prevent damage", TMZ reported yesterday.

Sir Elton told the gossip website, "It feels strange not to be able to perform these 'Million Dollar Piano' concerts at the Colosseum ... I love performing the show and I will be thrilled when we return to the Colosseum in October to complete the 11 concerts."

"All I can say to the fans is 'sorry I can't be with you,'" he added.

Caesars Palace, home to the Colosseum theatre, confirmed yesterday that his weekend shows were cancelled and said that the singer would return to the venue later this year.

He was believed to have been released from the hospital, TMZ reported.
