Elton John postpones more gigs due to illness
Elton John has postponed three US gigs due to an ongoing illness.

The 'Rocket Man' singer was due to play in Seattle and Portland in the next couple of weeks (November 4, 7 and 10) with Billy Joel on the pair's joint Face 2 Face tour.

The trio of shows had been rearranged from the summer when Joel himself was struck down by illness.

However, a statement on Elton John's website said he has been forced to pull the shows on doctor's orders after being hit by "a serious case of e-coli bacterial infection and influenza".

Promoters are advising fans to keep hold of tickets and await news of possible rescheduling.

The affected dates are:

Seattle Key Arena (November 4 and 7)
Portland Rose Garden Arena (November 10)

Elton John pulled a number of UK and Ireland dates his own solo tour last week (October 26).
