Tucson: A bout of food poisoning has caused the postponement of Elton John`s scheduled concert at Tucson Arena.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that Wednesday night`s show was nearly sold out with about 8,800 tickets purchased. Organizers say the British rocker will perform Thursday night instead.

A spokeswoman for the Tucson concert venue says John apologizes for the inconvenience caused by his illness, but doctors say he will be fine to take the stage Thursday.
