Elton John hospitalized with serious respiratory infection
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (BDCi) – Singer Elton John checked into a Los Angeles hospital on Wednesday, where doctors diagnosed him with a serious respiratory infection.

John, 65, became ill while performing his “Million Dollar Piano” show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last weekend, his publicist said.

He checked into Cedars-Sinai on Wednesday, where he underwent a battery of tests.

John has been released from the hospital, but his doctors recommended that he not perform for a week.

“Those tests resulted in the attending Cedars-Sinai physician recommending that Elton not perform any concerts for approximately seven days with complete rest and antibiotic treatment to cure his respiratory infection and prevent any damage,” a statement from the publicist said.

His shows Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at The Colosseum have been canceled, the statement said.
