Billy Joel and Elton John have postponed the eight remaining dates on their joint U.S. concert tour so Joel can recover from an inflamed vocal cord and an upper respiratory infection. On Monday, a New York Times review of Friday night's concert at Madison Square Garden suggested that Joel "seemed to have ingested something quite a bit stronger than cough syrup," and described him as rambling and bellowing. Joel's rep declined to comment on the review, telling The Associated Press only, "He was sick."
