It’s back to the Yellow Brick Road for Elton John – who left the hospital early Thursday after illness had forced him to cancel a series of concerts.

The singer, 62, was treated at a hospital last weekend in London after suffering from flu and a “serious case” of e. coli bacterial infection, his Web site said.

His spokesman Gary Farrow tells PEOPLE the singer is now “fine.”
