Sir Elton John has said he is “deeply upset and sorry” for cutting short a concert in New Zealand after being diagnosed with a mild form of pneumonia. John was due to perform two more concerts in Auckland on Tuesday and Thursday as part of his last tour, Farewell Yellow Brick Road.

“Elton John was disappointed and deeply upset at having to end his Auckland concert early last night,” the promoters’ statement said. “At this stage, all remaining shows will go ahead as planned.”

The concert was part of Sir Elton’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. The tour lists performances at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on Tuesday and Thursday.

Sir Elton thanked the concert attendees via an Instagram post and apologised for ending the show early.

“I want to thank everyone who attended tonight’s gig in Auckland. I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia earlier today, but I was determined to give you the best show humanly possible,” Sir Elton wrote. “I played and sang my heart out, until my voice could sing no more. I’m disappointed, deeply upset and sorry. I gave it all I had.”

The New Zealand Herald reported Sir Elton told the crowd he was ill but that he did not want to miss the show. He slumped on a stool and required medical attention after performing Someone Saved My Life Tonight, but recovered and continued to play, the newspaper reported.

According to the Mayo Clinic, walking pneumonia is an informal term for a milder form of pneumonia that isn’t severe enough to require being admitted to hospital or bed rest. It affects the respiratory tract and is most often caused by bacteria.
