Elton John, suffering from a bout of food poisoning, postponed Wednesday night’s concert at the Tucson Arena.


The Arizona Daily Star reported the show, which was nearly sold out, was rescheduled for Thursday night.


According to a spokeswoman for the Tucson Convention Center, all of the 8,800 tickets purchased for Wednesday were honored on Thursday.


“Elton apologizes for the inconvenience caused due to his illness, but doctors assure him he will be fine for tomorrow’s evening performance,” said TCC spokeswoman Kate Calhoun in a news release.


“If for any reason you are unable to attend the re-scheduled Thursday concert, July 22nd, your tickets can be refunded at point of purchase,” she said.

    It never fails:
    It “always” takes a famous person” to be affected (eg: Rock Hudson w/ AIDS, etc..)or now Elton John w/ food poisoning “BEFORE THE PUBLIC GET’S IT”….WHY ?? When you play “cutsie” with dangerous “lifestyles” due to disease transmission and preparing foods at home and selling them to the public to make a quick dime, you are also playing cuties with your life….and others life as well.
