Elton John postpones several Texas shows after testing positive for COVID-19

Elton John postpones several Texas shows after testing positive for COVID-19

John had just restarted his tour last week, after he had to halt his tour during the pandemic and again for hip surgery. Days before he took the stage in New Orleans, he spoke with CBS News senior culture correspondent Anthony Mason. “As always, thank you for all your love and support and I can’t wait to see you soon!” “I haven’t played for two years,” he told Mason. “I think it feels strange for everybody who’s a performer. I’ve been to a couple of shows, and the audience go nuts. So I’m looking forward to it from that point of view and I hope I’m not too rusty, that’s it.” 

He said those who had tickets to the shows, scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday night at Dallas’ American Airlines Center, will be contacted soon. ERIKA GOLDRING / Getty Images

The music icon added that he’s fully vaccinated and boosted and expects to be able to perform at his scheduled show in Arkansas this weekend. Elton John performs during his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour on January 19, 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
