John’s ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour has faced multiple postponements since kicking off in 2018, due to the pandemic as well as the singer’s hip injury. Last month, he announced fresh dates for North America after resuming the tour in New York back in January.
John was due to play a run of rescheduled UK headline dates between October and December 2021. However, he was forced to postpone the shows to 2023 after sustaining a hip injury from an “awkward” fall.
“It’s something I wanna finish,” he told NME. “I’m looking forward to doing it and going out on the high that we were on – we were an express train that hit the buffers. At the moment I finish supposedly in 2023, in the summer, by which time I’ll be 76 – and that’s it, baby.”
