 Sir Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour is one of the many that has fallen victim to the coronavirus pandemic, with the reminder of the iconic performer’s dates rescheduled for 2021.

The 73-year-old was due to bring the tour tour to North America in May until July, but pulled the plug earlier this year in the wake of the crisis – while his farewell dates in the UK have now also been rescheduled.

‘Rescheduling my concerts is never a decision taken lightly, but my priority is always the safety of all parties including my tour crew, the venue staff and of course you, my amazing fans,’ Sir Elton said in a statement.

‘It breaks my heart that we have had to reschedule the 2020 dates we were all looking forward to so much, but my team and I have been working diligently on rescheduled plans for 2021.’

Just what are the new dates and where is he playing?

Meanwhile, fans of Sir Elton are currently being treated to a weekly series of his live shows from 1976-2001 on YouTube – airing at 5pm every Saturday for six weeks.

The first show, his 1976 concert at the Edinburgh Playhouse, aired last weekend, with the star also raising money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Fund.

Sir Elton said: ‘My Foundation’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund helps frontline partners prepare for and respond to the pandemic and its effects on HIV prevention and care for the most marginalized communities.

‘We cannot jeopardise HIV testing and care during this time or else the results could be disastrous for the 37.5 million people living with HIV.

‘So, I’m really happy to connect this YouTube Concert series to benefit our Foundation’s urgent COVID response.’
