He's such a trooper, but we're also very concerned.
Fans in Australia were treated to a phenomenal show by Sir Elton John last night, despite the fact that he was advised by his doctors not to take the stage.
Prior to the gig, Elton was feeling under the weather and doctors were called in to examine him. He was suffering from persistent cough and he was diagnosed as having bronchitis. But when his physicians told him not to perform, he refused to cancel the show as he didn't want to disappoint his loyal followers.
We appreciate his own loyalty to his fans, but we really wish he would take care of himself. It sounds like he needs rest and some serious downtime if he is going to kick this thing. His next show isn't until Saturday, so here is hoping he takes the next two days to recoup and feel better.
Do feel better, Elton!
