The Rocket Man needs to take a little time off to refuel.
Sir Elton John, 66, has been diagnosed with an appendix abscess that requires surgery, his spokesman confirms to PEOPLE.
The affliction has forced him to postpone all upcoming shows on his European tour, including a concert Friday in London's Hyde Park alongside Elvis Costello and Ray Davies.
"Elton is incredibly disappointed to postpone these tour dates," says his rep. "To know that he made such super-human efforts and continued to perform to thousands through his illness only confirms his dedication to his European fans. He is eager to be back on top form and return to play the remaining shows starting in early September 2013."

Like any parents about to welcome their second child, Elton John and partner David Furnish wondered how their 2-year-old son Zachary would react when his little brother Elijah came home.
Turns out, they had nothing to worry about.
Zachary "is as excited as we are," says John, 65, who, with Furnish, 50, welcomed Elijah on Jan. 11 in L.A. via the same surrogate who delivered Zachary in 2010 (they also used the same egg donor and again chose not to learn which of them was their son's biological father).
