Elton John has posted a note on his website thanking his fans for their support following the removal of his appendix earlier this month. The operation forced him to cancel his summer tour.
Elton says, "I would like to thank the literally thousands of people who have sent me get-well cards and messages over the past two weeks. Your well wishes have touched me deeply and will play a big part in my recovery. I cannot wait to see you all and thank you in person when I resume my concert schedule later this year. In the meantime, please know that I consider myself a very blessed man to have such caring and considerate fans. With all my love, Elton."
He's scheduled to resume his tour on September 4th in Leeds, England.
