Elton John, suffering from walking pneumonia, was forced to cut short his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour concert midway in New Zealand, according to sources.
John “completely” lost his voice while he was performing at Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium on Sunday, as a part of the Oscar winner’s New Zealand leg of Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, the sources said.
Despite his illness, John did not disappoint his huge number of fans that thronged the show to see him perform his classics.
After the medical team checked him halfway through the show, John was able to perform for a while and he delighted the crowd with his classics such as Candle in the Wind and All the Girls Love Alice.
Sadly, the singer could not go on with the show and was called off the set as his voice gave way when he tried to sing Daniel.
“I’ve just completely lost my voice. I can’t sing. I’ve got to go. I’m sorry,” the 72-year-old musician was quoted as telling the crowd in a BBC report.
