Sir Elton John has postponed his upcoming 2021 UK and European tour until 2023, due to a hip injury from this summer when he “fell awkwardly”.
Thevlegendary star tweeted an update to his Yellow Brick
Sir Elton went on to explain that despite being unable to play his full three-hour sets while travelling around the country/continent, he will still perform a short five-song set at the Global Citizen event on 25 September – as he doesn’t want to let the charity down.
After the event, he confirmed, he will then have an operation, and hopes to be fit to recommence the US leg of his epic final tour January 2022, starting in New Orleans.
Ticketholders for the rescheduled performances will receive new event information shortly.
“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,” he said.
“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.”
