Elton John

Cancels Vegas Concerts --

I Was POISONED!

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.

If he was poisoned, why didn't he die?

Elton was not sick. He went to Whitney's funeral on Saturday morning. I was in Vegas and they didn't tell anyone the show wasn't going to happen until about 7pm (the show was supposed to start at 7:30pm. Not cool!

I got my first case of food posisoning in Mesa Arizona last month, and I would not wish that on anyone. I could not hold down a 1/2 a glass of water. I went to Urgi care, got a shot for nausea, and some pills, and was ok that day. I can't think of anything worse than food poisoning.
