Elton John delays concert gig due to brief illness
HollywoodNews.com: As the rock concert business takes a hit and performers cancel gigs, Elton John had a more legitimate excuse for skipping his Tucson, Arizona performance: He had food poisoning.
John was expected to sing on Wednesday to a sold out arena of 8,800 fans, but had to delay the show for 24 hours.
Pollstar reports, “Now fans will have to wait until tomorrow evening. Same time, same venue, same unbearably hot Arizona city.”
“Elton apologizes for the inconvenience caused due to his illness, but doctors assure him he will be fine for tomorrow’s evening performance,” Tucson Convention Center spokeswoman Kate Calhoun said. “If for any reason you are unable to attend the rescheduled Thursday concert, July 22, your tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.”
