|Elton cancels Nottingham concert
Saturday, December 11 2004
Elton's concert for December 10, 2004 has been cancelled because he has a throat infection.
Elton struggled with his voice at the Sheffield concert the previous night and apologised but he did not want to cancel.
Sadly it has not improved. The concert has been rescheduled for June 10, 2005.
Elton said: "I'm sorry to disappoint all the people who've bought tickets for the show."
Organisers said he should be well enough to perform at his next dates, in Glasgow and at the Hammersmith Apollo in London.
Elton explained: "I seem to have caught this infection only yesterday, and my voice started to go during last night's show. I woke up this morning with virtually no voice."
He added: "I've been doing all that I can to try to get my voice back and I've seen a throat specialist today who has advised that it would be foolish to go ahead with today's show."
