He’s one of music’s living legends, but even Elton John is susceptible to illness from time to time.

The “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” singer was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles yesterday (May 23) due to a serious respiratory infection.

As a result, John has cancelled his gigs at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace today, tomorrow, and Sunday.

Elton told press, “It feels strange not to be able to perform these ‘Million Dollar Piano’ concerts at The Colosseum. I love performing this show and I will be thrilled when we return to The Colosseum in October to complete the eleven concerts soon to be scheduled. All I can say to the fans is sorry I can’t be with you.”
