    'I am extremely unwell': Elton John postpones Indianapolis farewell show to 2020 due to illness

    ..."To my dear fans in Indianapolis, it is with the heaviest heart that I'm forced to deliver the news that I am extremely unwell and therefore unable perform at @TheFieldhouse tonight," he wrote.

    He continued, "I absolutely hate to let my fans down, but I owe it to you to put on the best #EltonFarewellTour show possible and unfortunately that's simply not possible... Thank you so much for your support and understanding."...

    He talked bad about Michael Jackson and Tina Turner. Maybe that’s why he’s sick.

    I hope it isn't anything serious and he'll be better soon.

    "Maybe that’s why he’s sick?" Wow, what an awful comment. He actually didn't talk bad about everyone. To note - just because they are your favorites doesn't mean they are perfect. I worked in the music industry for 30 years, and I hate to break it to you, most folks are not saints. MJ was very ill at the time, and Tina really is a control freak and a ballbuster, so big deal. I have a few favorite musicians/rock stars as well, and I was really bummed when I found out they weren't as fabulous in person as my mind had them made out to be. It's reality.

    He was relating his experience with them. If you want to discuss his book, and why you didn't like it, there may be other, more appropriate forums for you to do so.

    Elton John Cancels Concert Due To Illness
    According to the post, the tour will resume on March 2020.

    Added John: “I promise I will deliver the show you deserve. Thank you so much for your support and understanding.”


    Wow! I thought he was just canceling this particular concert. Seems he'll be out until March of 2020. That doesn't sound like a virus...... Maybe it's related to the death of his MIL.

    He's had so many serious health issues in the past, I'm surprised that he is still alive, much less still going on around the globe tours - and at 72 years old!

    1987: Removal of throat lesions that dramatically altered his voice

    1999: Heart issues - Received pacemaker

    2012: Hospitalized for a week with a serious respiratory infection

    2013: Appendix abscess and rupture, surgery

    2017: Prostate cancer

    2017: Prostate cancer surgery that rendered him incontinent and having to wear diapers

    2017: Massive rare and almost deadly infection contracted in South America. He spent two months recovering and learning how to walk again.

    Props to this guy for continuing on as he has. I hope whatever is going on now is not serious. It could very well be related to one of the issues he's had in the past. I hope the cancer is not back.

    Oh dear, It's possible it's related to his MIL, but he's said he is "extremely unwell", so who knows. :( I know that David was very close to her, as was Elton. I wonder was she sick for a while, or was this sudden?

    Beautiful:

    David Furnish on Instagram: “Today I lost my beautiful, angelic Mother. She passed away peacefully in the middle of the night, with me and my brothers by her side.…”

    "Today I lost my beautiful, angelic Mother. She passed away peacefully in the middle of the night, with me and my brothers by her side.

    Mum radiated gentle kindness. She was utterly devoted to her family. We all richly benefitted from her patient wisdom and bountiful love.

    I treasure this photo of Mum and Dad on their wedding day - bursting with joy and fresh-faced optimism over their union and the life they planned to build together. They shared the greatest love I have ever known; A rock-solid foundation from which my brothers and I flourished.

    Rest in peace Mum. You lived your life impeccably. I will never forget you. I promise to do my best to pass the gifts you gave to me on to my own beautiful sons."

    What a lovely tribute David wrote to his Mum.

    I’ve been doing the Crocodile Rock with Elton since the early days. What a showman! I will always remember the dignity and emotion he displayed at Princess Diana’s wedding.

    Here’s wishing our Rocket Man a speedy recovery!

    I've been a fan since 70s.

    I last saw him in concert almost 4 years ago. He puts on an amazing concert. He doesn't seem to get tired. While his band and backup singers get an intermission break he goes to the front of the stage and signs autographs. No breaks for him.

    I hope he recovers very soon. Sympathies to his family in loss of mother in law.

    Thanks! I loved Elton and was beyond thrilled to be there but at 15, I'm not sure I quite grasped what a big deal it was! I honestly cherish the memory.
