Sir Elton John has postponed a concert in Arizona after falling sick with a bout of food poisoning.

The Rocket Man was due to perform at the Tucson Arena on Wednesday night to an 8,800-strong crowd.

But he was forced to cancel because he was too ill to take the stage.

The rocker has moved the show to Thursday, according to his spokeswoman.
