Elton John had to stop a performance because of 'walking pneumonia.' What does that mean?

Elton John Stricken With Pneumonia, Cuts New Zealand Show Short

Elton John has pneumonia, and it’s unclear if he’ll continue what he says is his final world tour. “I played and sang my heart out, until my voice could sing no more,” he said in a tweet. “I’m disappointed, deeply upset and sorry.

"Even by Trumpian standards, the jowly Barr, in his large round glasses, pinstripe suit and Trump-red tie, was strikingly sycophantic."

"'In his State of the Union, President Trump delivered a message of genuine optimism filled with an unapologetic faith in God and in American greatness and in the common virtues of the American people: altruism, industriousness, self-reliance and generosity,' he read, deadpan. Trump, he went on, 'loves this country,' and 'he especially loves you.' The boot-licking performance continued, about Trump’s wise leadership, his unbroken promises and even the just-impeached president’s passionate belief...

Elton John on ‘Rocketman’ Vs. ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’: ‘Ours Tells the Truth’

It’s a logical comparison: “Rocketman” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” are both biopics about British rock stars whose careers launched in the 1970s — Elton John and late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, respectively — and both were directed by Dexter Fletcher.
