His current tour – Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour – had first been postponed due to COVID back in March 2020. 

He announced at the time that he would be postponing 19 dates as the pandemic began. 

At the time, he told fans: ‘The health of my fans is of the upmost importance to me, so I have made the decision to reschedule my upcoming #EltonFarewellTour shows between March 26th – May 2nd.’ 

Adding: ‘Unfortunately, as all of you know, there has been this awful pandemic…which is extremely worrying and extremely dangerous if we don’t take precautions.’ 

‘I would encourage you to stay at home, do what everyone tells you to do, take precautions, because I want you to be as safe as possible.’ 

He finished his statement by saying ‘when it is safe and when we can all enjoy ourselves together in the best possible circumstances.’ 

Last week, Elton was pictured arriving in Atlanta on his private plane with husband David Furnish.
