Elton John was scheduled to continue his farewell 'Yellow Brick Road' tour after a lenghty delay due to the pandemic. He was set to perform at the American Airlines Center in Dallas Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

A news release was posted on the AAC website early Tuesday saying, "Elton and the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour look forward to returning to the stage shortly."

Fans are being instructed to hold on to tickets for "rescheduled dates to be announced soon."

John is fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and boosted and says so far his symptoms are mild and he hopes to return to the stage in Little Rock, Arkansas this weekend.

The two Dallas shows are part of Elton John's goodbye tour when he announced back in 2018 he was retiring from touring to spend more time with his family.

He's due back in North Texas this fall. He's set to perform at Globe Life Field September 30th.
