Elton John Postpones US Tour Dates After Testing Positive For COVID
Sir Elton John has postponed some of his US tour dates after testing positive for COVID-19.
Taking to Instagram to share the news, Elton apologised for any inconvenience caused by the delay. The shows were originally scheduled to take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.
“Hi everyone, wanted to send a message to let you know that I have contracted COVID and so have had to reschedule my shows in Dallas. If you have tickets, you’ll be contacted with the new dates really soon,” he said.
“It’s always a massive disappointment to move shows and I’m so sorry to anyone who’s been inconvenienced by this but I want to keep myself and my team safe.
“Fortunately, I’m fully vaccinated and boosted,” he added. “And my symptoms are mild so I’m fully expecting to be able to make the Arkansas shows this weekend. As always, thank you for all you love and support and I can’t wait to see you all soon!”
The postponement by the 74-year-old British pop star comes only a week after Adele was also forced to cancel her US concerts.
Originally started in 2018, Elton’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour was heavily delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Shows resumed after almost two years last Wednesday, beginning in New Orleans, Louisiana.
