(AP) Joel Delays Concert Due to Illness


SAINT PETERSBURG, FL (AP) – Billy Joel and Elton John postponed a concert in their "Face to Face" tour after Joel became ill.

The singer is suffering from "acute upper respiratory infection and laryngitis," and has been feeling under the weather for several days, said Max Loubiere, his tour manager.

Monday night's concert at the Ice Palace was scheduled as part of a national tour featuring the two artists.

Arena officials said the concert will be rescheduled, but no date was released. Ticketholders were advised to keep their tickets.

"We're trying to see what the schedule is, what Elton's schedule is," Loubiere told the St. Petersburg Times. "We'll just have to wait and see."

Joel's doctor advised against performing Saturday night, but the artist did so anyway, singing to a sold-out, 3-hour concert, Loubiere said.

Joel, 52, and John, 53, are scheduled to perform Friday night at New York's Madison Square Garden.




Cher Says Her Tour Will Be Her Last



Cher says her upcoming tour in support of her new album,
“Living Proof,” will be her last. "I want to do some movies
and I really haven't had time to," she
told MTV News. "There's a musical that I really want to do
called 'The Enchanted Cottage,' and that is the thing that
is really closest to me right now. I have never had the
chance to sing and act in a movie."
