Elton John cancels another concert as tour partner, Billy Joel, battles flu

The two stars are currently on the U.S. leg of their world trek together, the Face to Face tour, and were due to play a sold-out gig in Buffalo, New York this week but doctors ordered Joel to rest after he showed signs of a bout of influenza.

Joel was still bed-ridden on Saturday (July 25), forcing the cancellation of the pair's Monday (Jul 27) night slot at the Times Union Center in New York over fears the Piano Man would not recover in time.

Spokespeople for the pair insist the concerts will be rescheduled.
