Just 20 minutes after last night's sold-out show at the Amway was supposed to start, Elton John canceled the performance because of an ongoing issue with an ear infection.

The Grammy award-winning musician issued an apology on Twitter this morning, where he also mentioned that tonight's show in Tampa is canceled. "We are sincerely sorry to everyone due to attend the shows in Orlando last night and Tampa tonight,” said the statement.
Though last night's appearance was billed as John’s final tour, the show will will be rescheduled for a later date. It’s unclear exactly when this will happen.
