Elton John had to cancel a number of concerts after developing a “rare and potentially deadly” bacterial infection.
The 70-year-old musician became extremely ill during a return flight home from a tour in South America and spent two nights in intensive care at a hospital in Britain, The New York Times reported.
John was released from the hospital on Saturday and is resting at home. He is expected to make a complete recovery, a spokesman said.
