Elton John Has Been Rushed To Hospital

Apr 27, 2017

Elton John has reportedly been sent to hospital whilst flying home from his South American tour.

The singer was due to perform at Ceaser’s Palace in Las Vegas but has had to cancel his appearances as he became “violently ill” whilst flying home from Chile.

Elton was taken to hospital as soon as he landed back in the U.K and remained in intensive care.

According to a statement from Robert and Cowan who organised the Las Vegas events, “infections of this nature are rare and potentially deadly” but luckily medical teams reacted to the situation quickly.

Elton is currently resting and is expected to make a full recovery.

The singer released his own statement thanking fans for their support.

“I am so fortunate to have the most incredible and loyal fans and apologize for disappointing them. 

“I am extremely grateful to the medical team for their excellence in looking after me so well.”

Our thoughts are with Elton during this time.
