Elton John was forced to cut a concert short when he couldn’t continue performing due to walking pneumonia.
He tweeted to fans after the Auckland, New Zealand:
I played and sang my heart out, until my voice could sing no more. I’m disappointed, deeply upset and sorry.
I gave it all I had.

@eltonofficial Presented a staggering performance despite having pneumonia. Absolute professional and an utter trooper. Gave his all for the audience and I’m stoked to have been among them. You legend Elton!#EltonFarewellTour
