    Elton John has canceled all remaining European tour dates. The beloved singer and Rocket Man must undergo surgery for appendicitis.

    His publicist said that John, 66, will have the procedure in the U.K. in the coming weeks. While disappointed at having to table the dates, the singer has been playing through pain and has reached a point of pain saturation where he can no longer do so.

    He hopes to be back on the road in September and to make up those dates, once he is fully recovered.

    Get better soon, Elton! Take a minute off to rest and get back to 100 percent.
