Elton John has rescheduled his sold-out concert at Amway Center to March 18, 2019 after postponing his Tuesday night performance, due to a serious ear infection. Concert tickets for the originally scheduled show will be honored on the new date.
Elton's "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour stop in Central Florida was called off at show time. Elton quickly took to social media to state “I’m so deeply sorry to everyone attending the shows in Orlando last night and Tampa tonight. I have been on a course of antibiotics to combat an ear infection and it was expected that these would clear the infection up in time for me to play in Orlando. I travelled to the venue in preparation for the show, but after further consultation with doctors before taking the stage, the decision had to be taken on their advice that I still wasn’t well enough to perform. We always play 100% live and with impaired hearing and ear pain, I wouldn’t have been able to deliver the performance that my fans deserve. I absolutely hate letting my fans down and it was an incredibly hard decision to make. Thank you for all your patience and support”.
With the assistance of the Amway Center, the show was rescheduled into the end of the March run in 2019. "We are very grateful Elton John and his team were able to work with us to reschedule the concert on his farewell tour so he can play all his hits for his Orlando fans. We welcome his return to the Amway Center in March," said Allen Johnson, Chief Venues Officer of Orlando Venues.
