ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Elton John has canceled both sold out shows in Florida Wednesday. The Amway Center announced the news via Twitter: “We’re sorry to announce that due to an ear infection, Elton John is unable to perform tonight. The rescheduled Orlando date will be announced in the near future so please hold onto your tickets.”
While some fans had their own speculations, they were quickly put to rest. “Any speculation or claims of a bomb threat are false and completely unfounded,” City of Orlando Marketing Manager Tanya Bowley stated. “Tonight’s cancellation was indeed due to Elton John’s ear infection as previously shared from the outset.”
The Amway Center noted that “there was never a bomb threat,” adding “the new Orlando and Tampa dates will be announced in the near future.”
While most fans were disappointed, they look forward to John’s return.
