Elton had to cancel his show in Nottingham this Friday 10 December 2004 after a throat infection caused him to lose his voice.
The Nottingham Arena concert was the third date of his December tour of Britain.
Elton, said: "I'm sorry to disappoint all the people who've bought tickets for the show."
Organisers said he should be well enough to perform at his next dates, in Glasgow on Sunday and at the Hammersmith Apollo in London next week.
Elton explained: "I seem to have caught this infection only yesterday, and my voice started to go during last night's show. He added: "I've been doing all that I can to try to get my voice back and I've seen a throat specialist today who has advised that it would be foolish to go ahead with today's show."
