Elton John cancels shows in US
Sir Elton John has cancelled three Las Vegas performances on doctors' orders after being taken to hospital with a respiratory infection.
Officials from Caesars Entertainment said the Your Song singer came down with the infection last weekend and was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre on Wednesday. He was later released.
Doctors have recommended he does not perform for a week and takes antibiotics.
The Thursday, Saturday and Sunday performances of The Million Dollar Piano have been cancelled as a result.
Sir Elton said in a statement he is sorry he cannot be with his fans.
The Million Dollar Piano launched in September for a three-year run and features the singer's classic songs.
