Elton John Postpones Farewell Yellow Brick Road UK And European Tour Dates For 2021 Due To Injury

Thursday, 16 September 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Elton John has postponed the upcoming UK and European tour dates of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.

The legendary singer-songwriter and musician, 74, revealed that he has been forced to put the shows on hold until 2023 after injuring himself. Confirming the news, he said in a statement:

"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 programme 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."

The concerts affected were due to take place from the end of September through to December, and include stops in major cities across Europe, along with arena gigs in Manchester, London, Leeds, Birmingham, Liverpool, Dublin, Belfast, Aberdeen and Glasgow. All original tickets will be honoured at the rescheduled performances.

As confirmed by the singer, he will still perform at the forthcoming Global Citizen charity event on September 25. Earlier in September, it was announced that he will headline BST Hyde Park in summer 2022 as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road: The Final Tour. Tickets are on sale now.

John will release a new star-studded collaborative album called 'The Lockdown Sessions' on October 22.
