"I like how u waited til everyone spent their money on concessions b4 making the announcement. And if he was really in the building, he couldn't come out & apologize to the 15,000 fans waiting for him? Already contacted Ticketmaster for a refund. I will NEVER return to this arena!" another social media user wrote, slamming the venue for their lack of professionalism.

Others even suggested that Elton John's team had planned to cancel all along and waited until the last minute to announce it so that concertgoers would just spend more money.

"Just be honest we were there, he was not! You milked the crowd for food and merchandise! He was eating snickers at the Ritz!" tweeted a fan.

"Aaaaand just like that, Elton John cancelled his concert tonight, due to an ear infection. Couldn't we be notified before we entered, ate and sat down in the arena," added another.

"But no problem selling food, drinks, & merch for two hours prior to the announcement. Not an MD, but fairly certain ear infections so brutal that a performer can't go on don't pop up right at showtime. This evening was a disgrace. @eltonofficial & @AmwayCenter should be ashamed," wrote yet another angry concertgoer.

While some fans even went as far as to accuse Elton John of faking his illness, the singer also postponed his November 28 show in Tampa.

Fans will reportedly be refunded.
