Elton John Performs Despite Illness & Doctors Orders

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!

    I bet his wigs caught rabies. But Id drag myself on stage too for the millions he's making.

    This is why you don't have babies when you are in your 60's…….loser!

    The ultimate showman that loves his fans. Lip Syncing Madonna, and Britney could learn from him.

    He looks very bloated,especially his hands
    I know that can be a sign of failing kidneys, very serious if that is the problem

    COMPLETELY OVERRATED. PERSON MOST USES HIS GAYNESS AS A NEGATIVE ADVANTAGE IN THE MEDIA TO SUPPORT SOME STUPID CAUSE/ISSUE THAT OTHERWISE NO ONE GIVES A SHIT ABOUT - GAY OR NOT.

    I went to work last week with a sinus infection when my doctor told me to stay home. I want a large, shiny trophy that says "Trooper," too. I hate when people act like celebrities deserve such praise for performing with a cold, a headache, a stomach flu, etc. They're making millions off of ticket sales, they SHOULD perform when sick, provided they're not literally dying.

    What a load of dorks here. Maybe a bronchitis is a little different when you're singing 2 1/2 hours at a concert, than when you plant your hiney on an office chair? Maybe a bronchitis isn't something you only get when you're a celeb with a baby? Being on Perez' site doesn't mean you have to act up necessarily.

    Just hope Elt won't ruin his voice any more. Got tickets for next year. Leave something for the others, Ozzies! ;)
