Sir Elton John has had to cancel his show in Amway Center, Orlando and Amalie Arena, Tampa due to an ear infection, informed John's representative, Fran Curtis, to USA Today. The news came promptly after there were rumours that the shows were cancelled due to a bomb threat.

Amway Center took to its official handle on Twitter to inform fans and audiences.

City of Orlando Marketing Manager Tanya Bowley clarified and dispelled rumours of a bomb threat saying they were "false and completely unfounded." Bowley confirmed that the cancellation was due to the infection. Another sold-out show in Tampa at the Amalie Arena, scheduled for Wednesday, also had to be cancelled for the same reason.

Elton John's Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour was billed by the 'Candle In the Wind' singer as his final series of concerts before he permanently retired from the road. The tour is scheduled to last an entire year, tentatively wrapping in September 2019.
