Sir Elton John, was on Thursday, May 24, 2012, discharged from the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, where he has been receiving medication for his respiratory infection.

The 65-year-old singer-composer, was diagnosed with a respiratory infection and placed on antibiotics, and warned against stressful activities.

We gather this has now led to the cancellation of several proposed tours, including four concerts set for Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas.

‘It feels strange not to be able to perform these ‘Million Dollar Piano’ concerts at the Colosseum’ he said.  ‘I love performing the show and I will be thrilled when we return to the Colosseum in October to complete the 11 concerts‘, he concluded with an apology to his fans.

However, the Grammy award winner still plans to continue his tour in Europe this summer, starting with Germany on Friday, June 1, 2012.

Originally named Reginald Kenneth Dwight, the singer has won four Brit Awards, an Academy Award (for ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight?’ from 1994’s The Lion King), a Golden Globe Award, and a Tony Award.

He was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, and made a Knight in 1998, in recognition of his musical and charity work.
