CLEVELAND - Popular musician Sir Elton John is postponing several summer tour dates due to illness.
According to a statement on his website, the singer is suffering from an appendicitis and he is expected to undergo surgery in the U-K in the coming weeks.
Doctors have Sir Elton taking antibiotics for the condition and have advised him to postpone his upcoming shows from his European Tour, including a scheduled performance in London on Friday.
But the musician "won't let the sun go down" on him. He hopes to be back performing in early September.
