Elton John is on the mend after a medical scare and was forced to cancel all of the April and May performances of his Las Vegas residency.
“During a recent, successful tour of South America, Elton contracted a harmful and unusual bacterial infection,” a rep for John, 70, told PEOPLE Monday in a statement. “During his return flight home from Santiago, Chile, he became violently ill. Upon returning to the U.K., Elton’s doctors admitted him to hospital, where he underwent immediate treatment to remove the infection.
Thankfully, Elton’s medical team identified this quickly and treated it successfully. He is expected to make a full and complete recovery.”
