Elton John has postponed five weeks of concerts, including his April 15 concert at the Prudential Center in Newark. The new date has not been determined yet but will be posted, when available, at prucenter.com.
On his website, eltonjohn.com, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer posted the following message (and also posted the video that is embedded below):
“After serious consideration, it is with deep regret that Elton John will postpone a portion of upcoming North American dates on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour from March 26 through May 2, 2020. The May 22 thru July 8 performances remain as scheduled. This tough decision has been made with the safety and well-being of his fans put to the fore, at a time when health services are under increased pressure and with the concern that these gatherings risk accelerating the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
“Ticketholders of the postponed performances will receive new event information shortly and all original tickets will be honoured at the rescheduled performances.
“Elton looks forward to continuing to perform for his dedicated fans around the world and thanks you for your support.”
John launched his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour in September 2018 and dates are currently scheduled through February 2021.
