Thousands of people were waiting inside the Orlando Florida’s Amway Center Tuesday night when an announcement was made that the Elton John performance would be canceled due to the music legend suffering from an ear infection.
Amway Center posted the following tweet Tuesday:
“We’re sorry to announce that due to an ear infection, Elton John is unable to perform tonight. The rescheduled Orlando date will be announced in the near future so please hold onto your tickets.”
Amway representatives later confirmed that the concert will definitely be planned for a later date.
Elton John’s official Twitter page released the following statement:
“We are sincerely sorry to everyone due to attend the shows in Orlando last night and Tampa tonight.
Elton has been on a course of antibiotics to combat an ear infection and it was expected that these would clear the infection in time to play the Orlando show. Elton had traveled to the venue but after further consultation with doctors before he took the stage, the decision had to be taken on their advice that unfortunately he still wasn’t well enough to perform.
Elton and his band play 100% live and with impaired hearing and ear pain he wouldn’t have been able to deliver the performance his fans deserve. He will take a couple days rest to allow the infection to clear up and both will be rescheduled as soon as possible.”
