Sir Elton John offers ticket refunds

Elton John's Red Piano

Story by Jack Foley

SIR Elton John has been forced to offer fans ticket refunds for his cancelled UK shows after he wasn’t able to reschedule the dates.

The popular 62-year-old performer was forced to call off dates in Sheffield, Newcastle, London and Liverpool after being treated in hospital for flu and E.coli last month.

He had been hoping to re-schedule the dates but owing to the sparse availability of dates for the venues, as well as the scale of the Red Piano show, he has been defeated in his quest.

Announcing that Sir Elton was “terribly disappointed” to have to take that step, a spokesman for his promoter Marshall Arts said: “Sadly, due to venue availability and the scale of the Red Piano show, these shows cannot be rescheduled and have now been cancelled.

“Elton has been overwhelmed by the tremendous loyalty and messages of support he has received from his fans in the UK.”

Ticket holders will be refunded the full face value of their tickets and should contact the point of purchase.
