Elton John postpones upcoming Irish concerts after painful fall

Elton John has postponed his upcoming Irish gigs, after injuring himself in a fall.

His farewell tour of Europe and the UK, which included two concerts at Dublin’s 3Arena on December 3 and 4, has now been pushed back until 2023.

In a statement on Thursday, the singer said: “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.”

He continued: “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,” he said.

“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,” he wrote.

“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.”

“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.”

According to Ticketmaster, his Dublin shows will now take place on March 28 and 29, 2023, at the 3Arena.
