Elton John Postpones Farewell Tour Show, Says He's 'Extremely Unwell'
Elton John is "extremely unwell" and has had to postpone a scheduled concert in the United States, mid-way through his international 'Farwell Yellow Brick Road' tour.
The musician apologised to fans via social media, writing that he was "extremely unwell and therefore unable to perform" at a stadium in Indianapolis, in America's mid-west.
"I absolutely hate to let my fans down, but I owe it to you to put on the best #EltonFarewellTour show possible and unfortunately that's simply not possible," he wrote.
The mammoth farewell tour kicked off in the United States in September 2018 and has since travelled around North America, the UK and Europe.
John is scheduled for a long series of performances in Australia from next month until March 2020. He will play 19 dates in cities and towns including Perth, Adelaide, Geelong, Melbourne, Sydney, the Hunter Valley and Bathurst.
The news comes as John's partner David Furnish announced that he had lost his "beautiful, angelic Mother".
"She passed away peacefully in the middle of the night, with me and my brothers by her side," Furnish wrote on Instagram, posted with a photo of his parents on their wedding day.
