Elton Lost His Voice - Peterborough Cancelled

Disappointed fans exited the Peterborough Memorial Centre Saturday (Sept. 8) night wondering if what they had heard moments before was the real deal.


About 8:10 p.m. the sold out arena crowd was notified that the much anticipated Elton John concert was cancelled. An announcer said the Elton John had lost his voice and would not be performing the concert. At first the audience thought it was a joke, but quickly realized the concert was cancelled.

Fans were told to hang onto their ticket stubs for a future date when the concert will be rescheduled.

What's the real story? He sounded great last night in Sarnia & he was interviewed Saturday afternoon at TIFF in Toronto. I don't buy the excuse. I was at the concert & I've heard different stories/gossip :(

What stories have you heard?

It is a very unusual cancellation, Elton either does the show or provides more notice. Something serious must have happened backstage.

I was at the arena and we were well and truly shocked when a voice over the loudspeaker (not even a live person on stage) very casually said the concert was cancelled! Unreal...everyone sat in disbelief!I would love to know if he was actually at the venue and honestly decided last minute that he couldn't perform. Otherwise why no notice at all?? We drove from 3 1/2 hours away...so hope we can make it if he reschedules!

I lost my virginity once..I got over it and did it the next day with someone else. I never told anybody the real reason why...I didn't think it mattered. I never told anybody until I was on my death bed. I spoke to my close friend Daniel and said " I had someone else better to screw, to make a better impression,in turn made more money". The Bitch is Back !!!!

He was touring about Toronto the same day, probably talking alot. If his voice was 'poor', should he save it for Peterborough, or his charity event??!!
