It seems there is some bad news regarding Sir Elton John as he was forced to postpone his farewell tour after suffering a bad hip injury due to a fall.
The music maestro informed fans that the upcoming European and UK tour dates of his 2021 Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour have been rescheduled to 2023.
“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I am forced to reschedule the 2021 dates of my Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in Europe and the UK to 2023.
At the end of my summer break I fell awkwardly on a hard surface and have been in considerable pain and discomfort in my hip ever since. Despite intensive physio and specialist treatment, the pain has continued to get worse and is leading to increasing difficulties moving.
I have been advised to have an operation as soon as possible to get me back to full fitness and make sure there are no long-term complications. I will be undertaking a programme of intensive physiotherapy that will ensure a full recovery and a return to full mobility without pain.
I know how patient my incredible fans have been since Covid halted touring last year, and it breaks my heart to keep you waiting any longer. I completely feel your frustrations after the year we’ve had. I promise you this – the shows will return to the road next year and I will make sure they are more than worth the wait.
Naturally fans were disappointed to hear the sad news but also sent their love and support to Sir Elton John. We wish Sir Elton John a speedy recovery so that he can go back to doing the thing he loves the most.
