Elton John Cancels New Zealand Shows Due To Pneumonia

Music legend Elton John was forced to canceled two of his remaining shows in New Zealand as his fight with pneumonia continues. The shows have been rescheduled for next year.

Earlier this week, John had to cut short a performance in Auckland after he lost his voice and needed help on stage.

“I always want to be able to give 100% and I’m afraid that, right now, I’m not able to do that. I am grateful for the love and loyalty I have been shown by all of you and I can’t wait to return in January next year to perform my final New Zealand shows,” John said in a statement.

“Despite the best efforts of a performer who never wants to disappoint his fans, upon further consultation from doctors and specialists, it has this evening been decided that Sir Elton John’s two remaining Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland, performances will be rescheduled to Friday 15th and Saturday 16th January 2021,” the promoters added in a statement.

The concerts were part of John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. After the New Zealand shows, John is scheduled for seven performances in Australia before traveling to the U.S. and Canada.
