Elton John has today announced that the forthcoming 2021 European and UK tour dates of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour have to be rescheduled to 2023. Elton was scheduled to play arenas in Manchester, London, Leeds, Birmingham, Liverpool, Aberdeen and Glasgow.
'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 program of intensive physiotherapy that will ensure a full recovery and a return to full mobility without pain.
I am going to complete the charitable Global Citizen event on 25th September as I don’t want to let a charity down. Being just five songs it’s a very different physical undertaking to the demands of playing for close to three hours every night on tour and travelling overnight between countries. After this I will be having the operation to ensure the tour can get back on the road in January of 2022 in New Orleans.
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.
Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment, Exhibitions & Marketing at P&J Live said: "Although we know Elton’s loyal fans will be very disappointed to see Elton’s tour dates move, we are sure they will join in wishing him a speedy recovery. We know that when he does take the stage in 2023, it will be absolutely worth the wait and his fans will experience a show that will be nothing short of spectacular."
Ticketholders of the rescheduled performances will receive new event information shortly and all original tickets will be honoured at the rescheduled performances.
The Farewell Yellow Brick Road will recommence on 19th January 2022 in New Orleans and run until the summer of 2023.
