LATEST: Flamboyant rocker SIR Elton John returned to full health on Monday (13DEC04) to perform for fans in his hometown of London, just 24 hours after the ailing star cancelled his Scottish gig.

The ROCKET MAN singer pulled the plug on two concerts over the weekend, his Nottingham, England performance on Friday (10DEC04) and his Glasgow show on Sunday (12DEC04), blaming a throat infection.

On Monday, John performed in front of a sell-out audience at west London's Hammersmith Carling Apollo, and is set to perform three more dates in the British capital tonight (16DEC04), Friday (17DEC04) and Saturday (18DEC04).

John has rescheduled his Nottingham and Glasgow concerts for June 2005.
