Elton John Postpones Two Shows

Elton John has hit a roadblock on his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour.

The Rocket Man was forced to postpone a pair of dates—Orlando and Tampa, Florida– due to an ear infection, according to a statement.

“Elton has been on a course of antibiotics to combat an ear infection and it was expected that these would clear the infection in time to play the Orlando show. Elton had traveled to the venue, but after further consultation with doctors before he took the stage, the decision had to be taken on their advice that unfortunately, he still wasn’t well enough to perform,” it reads.

The statement continues that Elton cannot perform with “impaired hearing and ear pain,” and adds, “He will take a couple of days rest to allow the infection to clear up, and both [shows] will be rescheduled as soon as possible.”

Elton will return to our area in 2019 for a pair of dates, March 5 and 6–at Madison Square Garden, New York City.
