Elton John’s two shows at the American Airlines Center in Dallas are being postponed after John announced he has tested positive for COVID-19. The singer is fully vaccinated and boosted and is experiencing only mild symptoms at this time.
The two shows — scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan. 25 and Jan. 26 — are expected to be rescheduled for a later date. A statement posted on the American Airlines Center website read: “It is with great regret that the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour dates in Dallas set for Tuesday, Jan. 25 and Wednesday, Jan. 26 must be postponed due to Elton recently testing positive for COVID-19. Fortunately, Elton is fully vaccinated and boosted, and is experiencing only mild symptoms. Fans should hold on to their tickets as they will be honored at the rescheduled dates to be announced soon.
