Elton John is on the mend after undergoing surgery to remove his appendix.
The Rocket Man's publicist confirmed the news on Saturday to British media outlets, saying the 66-year-old John went under the knife at Monaco's Princess Grace Hospital last Thursday and is now recuperating at his home in Nice, France.
The "Sad Songs" singer was forced to scrap a series of European concert dates including a big gig in London's Hyde Park after being diagnosed with a nasty case of appendicitis. A statement on his website last month revealed he had an "appendix abscess" that required an operation as well as an intensive regimen of antibiotics to reduce the inflammation.
