Elton John's oft-delayed Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour has hit yet another snag, with the “Rocketman” announcing his 2021 European dates will now be pushed back to 2023.
Elton took to social media and explained, “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I am forced to reschedule the 2021 dates. . . 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.”
He went on to say, “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 program of intensive physiotherapy that will ensure a full recovery and a return to full mobility without pain.”
