With his constant touring and high energy showmanship, it seemed like there was nothing that could stop Elton John from performing. However, the singer was forced to end a show in New Zealand early on Sunday after losing his voice due to pneumonia. The singer was caught on camera in tears as he was escorted off the stage.

Elton John was set for a string of shows in New Zealand this week, but his stop at Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium ended prematurely due to the singer’s health. John was forced to stop the show early after losing his voice. The singer took to Instagram after the show to apologize to fans saying “I was determined to give you the best show humanly possible. I played and sang my heart out, until my voice could sing no more.”

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. 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. Thank-you so much for your extraordinary support and all the love you showed me during tonight’s performance. I am eternally grateful. Love, Elton xx -- @bengibsonphoto
