LONDON: Music legend Elton John said on Thursday that he was postponing the UK and European leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour until 2023 due to a hip injury.

As part of the tour, John should be this year performing in the UK and Europe, followed by shows in the US in 2022.

In a statement posted on Twitter, the 74-year-old singer-songwriter said he recently suffered a fall that caused him « significant pain » .

« It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I am forced to postpone the dates of my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour in Europe and Great Britain for 2021 to 2023.

 » At the end of my summer break, I’m clumsy for a tough one I fell underground and have had considerable pain and discomfort in my hip since then. Despite intensive physical and specialist treatments, the pain kept getting worse and leading to increasing difficulty moving, « John said in the statement.

The music veteran said his doctors had advised him » to have an operation on me as soon as possible « I will be doing a program of intense physical therapy that will ensure a full recovery and return to full mobility without pain, » he added. </ However, John will continue to perform at Global Citizen Live, a charity event that will take place in multiple cities on September 25th.

« I will close the Global Citizen nonprofit event on September 25th as I am not a charity I want to let go.

« With only five songs, it’s a very different physical endeavor than the requirement to spend almost three hours every night playing en on tour and traveling between countries overnight, « he added.

John said he plans to start the US tour in New Orleans in January 2022.

 » I know how patient my incredible fans have been since Covid stopped touring last year and it breaks my heart to keep you waiting any longer.

“I can totally sense your frustrations after the year we’ve had. I promise you: the shows will be back on the streets next year and I’ll make sure that the wait is more than worth the wait, ”he said.
