« J’ai contracté la COVID-19 et je dois donc reprogrammer mes concerts à Dallas », prévus mardi et mercredi, a écrit le chanteur âgé de 74 ans.

« Heureusement, je suis pleinement vacciné et j’ai reçu un rappel, et mes symptômes sont légers donc je suis persuadé d’être en mesure de faire mon concert » samedi à North Little Rock, dans l’Arkansas, a ajouté Sir Elton John.

« C’est toujours une immense déception de reporter des concerts […] but I want to keep myself and my team safe,” he explained.

The two Dallas concerts will be rescheduled and ticket holders will be contacted very quickly, said the interpreter of Candle in the Wind.

The superstar with eccentric outfits had started his farewell tour called Farewell Yellow Brick Road in 2018, planning more than 300 dates in three years around the world, before it was disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.

In September 2021, he had released The Lockdown Sessions, a new album composed entirely of collaborations with young artists.

The singer has also postponed his October 2021 tour for three months due to hip surgery. He returned to the stage in January.

Author of songs such as I’m Still Standing, Your Song Where Crocodile Rock, Elton John has sold over 300 million records worldwide, performed over 3,500 concerts, and had a film dedicated to his life, Rocketman, in 2019.
