Elton John ill with Serious Respiratory Infection

LA TIMES  said this morning,

Elton John spent a day in a Los Angeles hospital for a “serious
respiratory infection” that forced the premature end to the legendary
singer’s Las Vegas show.

John became ill last weekend while performing his show, “The Million
Dollar Piano,” at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace, according to a
statement on his website.

“This week the condition worsened, even with medication and rest,” the statement said.

The singer spent Wednesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for
“extensive tests” that resulted in a doctor’s recommendation John take a
week of rest and antibiotics to “cure his respiratory infection and
prevent any damage.”

“The Million Dollar Piano” will  hopefully resume in Las Vegas in October.
