Elton John is recovering at home from "a serious respiratory infection" that forced him to cancel his shows in Las Vegas through the weekend.

A rep for the 65-year-old pop icon told ET on Friday that he is "at home and doing well" after being treated Wednesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

A spokeswoman for The Colosseum at Caesars Palace said on Wednesday that John was advised by doctors to suspend his "Million Dollar Piano" show performances for at least the next seven days to focus on getting adequate rest while he is treated with antibiotics.

In a statement, the singer expressed his disappointment to fans about the cancellations. "I love performing this show and I will be thrilled when we return to The Colosseum in October to complete the eleven concerts soon to be scheduled. All I can say to the fans is sorry I can't be with you. I hope to see you soon at this wonderful theatre at Caesars Palace."
