spectators disappointed to have spent for nothing
The promise of a new date has not prevented the fans of the singer to express their disappointment on social networks. A lot of people regret having spent the money for nothing, parking, goodies, food, drinks, or even in a hotel room for the fans not living in Orlando. They complain of not having been warned earlier on the grounds that the artist was necessarily suffering for several hours. After the concert, Elton John has warned at the last moment the organizers that it could not guarantee the show.
Are you going to refund us gold provide gift cards/ credit for all we spent on parking, merchandise, food, and drinks in the 2 hours you left the doors open with this information?! So disgusted with the way Amway Center handled this

The artist hoped until the end to ensure its commitment
Some fans are, a contrario, an apology to the pop star for the defection of last minute. For them, if Elton John has acted in this way, it is that he hoped until the end to ensure this appointment with her public. A version confirmed by a message posted on the Twitter account of the singer. “We are sorry”, one can read in this post. “Elton is taking antibiotics to fight an ear infection and we were hoping that this would help fight the infection in time to ensure the concert of Orlando.”

The star has made the trip up to Orlando, but was waived at the last moment because he felt that he was not fit enough and that his doctors tell him déconseillaient to sing. The star won’t be singing no more Thursday night in Tampa, Florida. It is well possible that other dates are cancelled: Elton John has a “take a few days of rest to eliminate the infection”. But promises to be back on stage “as soon as possible”.
