Elton John resuming tour

Singer on mend after flu, E. coli infection

LONDON –- Elton John has been released from a London hospital after being treated for flu and an E. coli bacterial infection.

The singer's spokesman Gary Farrow says John was at home Friday and was feeling fine. He left the hospital early Thursday.

He says John planned to resume his suspended tour and would play scheduled U.S. dates with Billy Joel starting in Oakland on Nov. 14.

Illness has forced the 62-year-old musician to cancel several gigs in Britain, Ireland and the U.S. over the past few weeks.
