Elton John postpones Texas concerts after testing positive for COVID-19

Pop megastar Elton John on Tuesday postponed two concerts in Dallas -- part of what is expected to be a lengthy farewell tour -- after testing positive for Covid-19.

"It's always a massive disappointment to move shows and I'm so sorry to anyone who's been inconvenienced by this but I want to keep myself and my team safe," said the British musician, 74, in a statement on social media.

"Fortunately, I'm fully vaccinated and boosted and my symptoms are mild."

The concerts, part of John's "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour, were scheduled for 25 January and 26 January. Both John and the American Airlines Center, where the shows were to take place, said they will be rescheduled and fans should keep their tickets.

John said he expected to be healthy enough to play his show on 29 January in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The tour, which is anticipated to be Sir Elton's last, has run into pandemic-era cancellations and postponements, like many other performing arts events.

The pop legend also recently had a hip operation that forced him to push back several dates.

Last year, John released an album entitled The Lockdown Sessions, which was recorded entirely under Covid-19 restrictions.
