Elton John: 'I'm Grateful To Be Alive!'

elton john alive postpones summer tour appendix appendicitis health sick

When we first heard that Elton John was postponing summer tour dates because of appendicitis, we were bummed, but not really worried! That's such a common problem, we just figured he'd get it fixed and then be on bed rest for a while. No biggie!

It turns out, though, that Elton is grateful to be alive — because he had been playing his tour dates for a while with the undiagnosed appendicitis! That's SUPER dangerous, as it could have been poisoning him from the inside and he wouldn't have even known it!

He played through the shows in pain, thinking he had food poisoning! Here's what he said:

"I was a ticking time bomb. I guess I could have died at any time. I feel so lucky and grateful to be alive."

Holy shizz!

We are SO glad he finally took the time to get checked out! Can you imagine a music world without Elton John?? US EITHER!

Feel better soon, Elton!
