Taking to social media, Elton John said, "I've been enjoying my time at home with the family while the world navigates its way through the COVID pandemic. But, I really miss being on the road and performing for my beloved fans in my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour. While the scientists are making great progress, we are making big plans for a return to touring that will allow us to ensure the health and safety of everyone."
In July John announced new dates in Europe. His global tour will officially return on September 1, 2021 in Berlin.
The Oscar, Grammy and Tony-winning star's final tour kicked off to a sold-out audience in Sept. 2018. Original tickets will be honored at the rescheduled performances.
