Elton John

Cancels Vegas Concerts --

I Was POISONED!

2/20/2012 9:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Elton John had a crappy weekend ... a very crappy weekend ... because the Rocket Man came down with a nasty case of food poisoning ... TMZ has learned.

E.J. was supposed to perform at Caesars Palace in Vegas this past Friday and Saturday night ... but the singer had to back out when something he ate ... backfired.

Elton's rep tells us John is doing "much better now" ... and will be ready to go in time for his next concert later this week .... in Guadalajara, Mexico.

We're guessin' he'll bring his own water.

In all the years that Elton John has been around I never knew him to cancel a performance. First of all, that is CLASS, and second, he must be VERY ill. Get well soon, Sir.

I hate when people bring up this gay mess, there have always been gay people in the world- just look at Starz series Spartacus" it was going on back then & probably before that period as well.

Lot's of gay hate today. What's the matter, not enough T & A on TMZ for you guys today? You do realize that a good portion of the staff here are gay, don't you? Why don't you boycott this site if you are so hateful against homosexuality? Oh, why do I bother. You all will just spew out your bigoted venom on some other form of race, religion or sexual preferance, as if you are so much the better person. Have a nice day, haters. Somebody has to say it.

Why do celebrities get food poisoning so often? I'd say that they should quit spending money on the high end restaurants and just hang with the simple folk. They'd feel better

Elton's tooter must have finally given out after all the years of hard abuse. It's an exit, not an entrance...

I bet Elton sat on the toilet with Pepto Bismol and his cellphone and screamed and yelled at the manager of whatever restaurant served him the food that gave him the food poisoning.

He's notorious for pitching fits. When "The Bitch Is Back" you better look out. :)
