Elton John has canceled a show in London’s Hyde Park due to appendicitis that will require surgery.
A statement issued Tuesday by the musician’s publicist said John was suffering from an inflamed appendix and surrounding abscess.
He has been advised by doctors to cancel his concerts while he undergoes a regime of antibiotics to treat the abscess. That will be followed by surgery in the next few weeks.
The 66-year-old performer had been due to play an outdoor concert in London’s Hyde Park on Friday on a bill with Elvis Costello and Ray Davies.
