Elton John postponed: Positive COVID-19 test impacts music icon’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road dates in Dallas

DALLAS, Texas – Elton John has postponed the next two shows of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour after testing positive for COVID-19.

The 74-year-old music icon’s camp has announced the postponement of a two-night slate at the American Airlines Center in Dallas that was scheduled to begin Tuesday night.

“It is with great regret that the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour dates in Dallas scheduled for Tuesday January 25th and Wednesday January 26th have to be rescheduled as Elton recently tested positive for COVID-19. Fortunately, Elton is completely vaccinated and boosted, and has only mild symptoms,” the musician’s representatives said in a statement late Tuesday morning.

Elton’s camp continued, “Fans should hold on to their tickets as they will be honored on the rescheduled dates to be announced shortly. Elton and the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour look forward to returning to the stage shortly.”

The tour, which was postponed from 2020 due to a pandemic, began Jan. 19 in New Orleans. Production continued at the Toyota Center in Houston for back-to-back nights last Friday and Saturday.

It’s not immediately clear whether dates after Dallas will be impacted. The singer will stop by Little Rock, Oklahoma City, Kansas City and Chicago next week.

Elton John is still expected for a European and North American stadium tour due to begin in May.
