Last November, a few days before Elton John was scheduled to play a pair of shows at State Farm Arena, he was forced to cancel dates because of a severe ear infection.
On Saturday, John apologized in a series of tweets to fans in Indianapolis that he was postponing that show until March due to being “extremely unwell.”
John is slated to bring his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour back to State Farm Arena for a pair of dates Nov. 1-2.
If so, Atlanta fans don’t need to worry, as John did play his pair of sold-out, hits-packed shows last fall, although he noted that he was still bothered by the ear infection.
Variety reported that John is also dealing with the sadness of the death of his mother-in-law, Gladys Furnish. At his Thursday concert in Toronto, John said Furnish had passed away at 3 a.m. and dedicated “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” to her family.
John’s next scheduled show in Monday at Bridgestone Arena. We’ll keep you updated with any news related to the Atlanta concerts.
