Despite only returning to the stage last week and being vaccinated, Sir Elton John has had to postpone his Farewell Yellow Brick Road shows in Texas after contracting Covid-19.

Following a two year hiatus due to the pandemic, the 74-year-old music legend was due to hit the American Airlines Centre stage in Dallas this week but fans "should hold on to their tickets as they will be honoured at the rescheduled dates to be announced soon".

According to a statement on behalf of John, the Rocket Man "is experiencing only mild symptoms."

The 'Tiny Dancer' hitmaker's rescheduled 2020 North American tour kicked off on January 19 in New Orleans and was scheduled to make stops in Houston, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, New York and Miami.

His tour this year also spans Europe and back to North America, before heading to Australia and New Zealand next year.

He hasn't announced a final date of the tour yet, but he’s indicated he may play select shows after it ends.
