John issued a statement detailing his initial fall on September 16, 2021, postponing his 2021 tour dates. “I’ve been advised to have an operation as soon as possible to get me back to full fitness and make sure there are no long-term complications,” John said in a statement. “I wouldn’t be 100% fit or confident because I’m in pain with my hip most of the time.
” I can’t move sideways, and I can’t get in and out of a car, so the decision had to be made because I wouldn’t want to go onstage and give anything less than my all.” The singer said that he intended to have surgery. ohn wrapped up his farewell tour earlier this summer in Stockholm, Sweden. The Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour took place between September 8, 2018, and July 8, 2023.
