Elton John cancelled a date on his farewell tour on Saturday, telling fans in Indianapolis that he was “extremely unwell”. The last minute cancellation came on Saturday afternoon.

John said in a statement posted on social media: “It is with the heaviest heart that I’m forced to deliver the news that I am extremely unwell and therefore unable to perform at Bankers Life Fieldhouse tonight. I absolutely hate to let my fans down, but I owe it to you to put on the best show possible and unfortunately that’s simply not possible”.

He added that the concert would be rescheduled for a new date in March, after a run of shows in Australia.

The next date on the tour is tonight at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. No indication that the show may also be pulled has been given so far.
