Elton John, the iconic 74-year-old singer, has tested positive for Covid-19. This is a scare, but his team is keen to point out that he is fully vaccinated and, therefore, the symptoms are mild.
“Fortunately, Elton is fully vaccinated and boosted, and is showing only mild symptoms”, he noted.
It is worth remembering that the vaccine does not prevent contracting the virus, but prevents the situation from developing into serious cases. Before the vaccine, even by age, Elton John would be more at risk. This is the importance of getting vaccinated. With the diagnosis, Elton John had to postpone shows.
“It is with great regret that the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour dates in Dallas, scheduled for Tuesday, January 25th and Wednesday, January 26th, must be postponed due to the fact that Elton has recently tested positive for COVID-19“, communicates.

“Hello everyone, I would like to send you a message to let you know that I have contracted COVID and had to reschedule my shows in Dallas. If you have tickets, you will be contacted with new dates very soon. It’s always a big disappointment to change shows and I’m sorry to anyone who’s been bothered by it, but I want to keep myself and my crew safe.
Luckily I’m fully vaccinated and on a booster, my symptoms are mild so I hope I can do the Arkansas shows this weekend.
As always, thank you for all your love and support and I can’t wait to see you all soon“.
