    Sir Elton John has postponed the UK and European legs of his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road: The Final Tour” in order to have an operation on his injured hip.

    John had been scheduled to play already-rescheduled shows in cities across Europe through the end of October, with the UK run commencing on October 30th. In a statement posted to social media, John revealed he would have to push those dates to 2023.

    “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,” he explained. “Despite intensive physio and specialist treatment, the pain has continued to get worse and is leading to increasing difficulties moving.”

    He continued, “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. I will be undertaking a program of intensive physiotherapy that will ensure a full recovery and a return to full mobility without pain.”

    The 74-year-old singer added he will still fulfill his obligation to play the Global Citizen Live charity concert on September 25th, as the five-song set is “a very different physical undertaking to the demands of playing for close to three hours every night on tour and travelling overnight between countries.”

    After playing the Global Citizen gig, John will have the operation with the goal of returning to the road in January 2022 to kick off the first North American leg of his tour. In the meantime, fans can look forward to his upcoming collaborative album The Lockdown Sessions, a star-studded affair featuring Eddie Vedder, Lil Nas X, Gorillaz, Stevie Nicks, and more that drops on October 22nd.
