Elton John won’t be touring Europe until 2023. He’s postponed tour dates so he can get hip surgery.
Elton was supposed to play cities in the UK and Europe as part of his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour this year, followed by a United States run kicking off in January 2022. But after suffering a fall this summer, his hip is in pain and needs surgery, so he’s postponing the first round of dates.
“Despite intensive physio and specialist treatment, the pain has continued to get worse and is leading to increasing difficulties moving,” Elton says in a statement. “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.”
This is yet another postponement for Elton’s farewel tour. He originally had to postpone the dates due to the pandemic.
