Sir Elton John has cancelled a concert after falling ill with food poisoning.

The 63-year-old musician - who is currently touring America - was due to perform to 8,800 fans at Arizona's Tuscon Arena last night (21.07.10) but was too ill to sing.

Kate Calhoun, a spokesperson for the venue, apologised to fans on the singer's behalf and said doctors have advised he should be better for tonight's replacement gig.

She explained: "Elton apologises for the inconvenience caused due to his illness, but doctors assure him he will be fine."

Singer Rufus Wainwright - who was helped by the 'Rocket Man' hitmaker when he was struggling with an addiction to crystal meth in 2000 - recently revealed despite his flamboyant persona, Elton is actually very shy when it comes to performing in public.

He said: "I don't think people are aware of how shy he is. He's a bit like the Wizard of Oz. On the one hand there's this big pomp and circumstance, but really beneath it all there's this very sweet little guy who's constantly feeling very insignificant, which is ironic of course. What I'm saying is, he's quite shy."

After completing the North American leg of his tour, the iconic singer-and-songwriter will go on to perform in 16 European cities.
