Elton John has to postpone concerts because of flu, E. coli



From the AP:
Elton John's spokesman says the singer has been hospitalized after suffering from a case of E. coli bacterial infection and the flu. The bad news is that he's had to postpone shows in England, Ireland and Seattle and Portland here in the states.

Gary Farrow said Monday that the pop star hopes to be released soon, but is suffering from a "bad case of the flu and a minor case of E. coli." John intends to rejoin the Face2Face tour later in the month when he and Billy Joel play concerts in northern California.

The Daily Mail's Web site quoted John's partner, David Furnish, as saying "He's okay -- he's fine," after leaving a London hospital, but Elton's still in his 60s, so it's about time to put it in a lower gear for awhile, don'tcha think?
