Elton John postpones European tour due to appendicitis

Singer Elton John is suffering from appendicitis and has postponed shows from his current European tour to be treated.

The artist fell ill during his recent tour and was diagnosed following a number of exploratory scans and blood tests in the United Kingdom, his spokesman said Tuesday on the entertainer’s website.

John, 66, who regularly performs 120 shows a year, won’t return until after recovering from surgery, his spokesman said.

John is expected to resume his tour in September.
