Posted Nov 02 2009 10:01pm
Not one but 2 illnesses at one time for the entertainer. Several concerts have been cancelled including one with Billy Joel, the other piano guy. BD
Elton John has been forced to pull out of his upcoming West Coast dates with Billy Joel as a result of an ongoing illness. The 62-year-old announced on his official Website that he has been forced to yank more shows on doctor's orders after being hospitalized with "a serious case of e-coli bacterial infection and influenza." Six months into his "Face 2 Face" tour with Billy Joel, Elton's illness has brought the trek to a halt. Shows planned for the two piano-playing rock legends in Seattle and Portland, Ore. in the next two weeks -- which were bumped from the pair's summer itinerary when Joel was sidelined with an illness -- seem likely to again be rescheduled.
