Boosted Sir Elton John Tests Positive For COVID, Has Mild Symptoms, Cancels Dallas Farewell Concerts


Elton John canceled his Dallas farewell concerts set for Tuesday and Wednesday at American Airlines Center after testing positive for COVID-19.

The announcement came Tuesday morning, hours before what would have been the Rocketman’s first Dallas show as part of his goodbye tour. In a statement, representatives for the tour said new dates will be announced soon and fans’ tickets will be honored at the rescheduled concerts.

The singer’s symptoms are mild, representatives said, adding that he is fully vaccinated and boosted against the coronavirus.

John plans to return to the stage this weekend in North Little Rock, Ark.

It’s the latest twist in a long series of scheduling changes for John, who’s had a hard time saying goodbye to live performance.
