After a bad fall, Elton John is forced to postpone his latest tour and will have to undergo surgery. “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 United Kingdom to 2023”, wrote Elton John in a message written on Instagram.
“At the end of my summer vacation I fell awkwardly on a hard surface – wrote the pop star – and since then I have had considerable pain and discomfort in my hip. Despite intense physiotherapy and specialized treatments, the pain continued to worsen, affecting also the movements “.
Elton John revealed that he will have to undergo surgery “I was advised to have an operation as soon as possible to be able to get back in full shape and be sure there are no long-term complications. I am undertaking an intensive physiotherapy program that will bring me back to full mobility without ache”.
The singer will not miss the great world solidarity event ‘Global Citizen Live’ scheduled for September 25th. “Being only five songs it is a very different commitment than a tour where you have to sing for three hours in a row every night – he explains – and go through different countries every night. After that, I plan the operation, so as to be sure to be back on track in January 2022 in New Orleans “.
“I know well – he adds – how patient my incredible fans have been since the tour was interrupted due to Covid last year, and it breaks my heart to have you wait even longer”. “I totally feel your frustration after the year we have spent. I promise you – concludes the star – that I will make sure that the wait was worth it”.
