|UPDATE: Remaining "Red Piano" UK & Dublin dates cancelled
Friday, November 20 2009
Elton's influenza and an e-coli bacterial infection led to the postponement of the four UK shows on his "Red Piano" tour in October 2009.
Sadly, due to venue availability in all four cities and the scale of the "Red Piano" show, these shows cannot be re-scheduled and have now been cancelled, reports eltonjohn.com. Meanwhile it has become known that that the Dublin show has also been cancelled.
Elton has been overwhelmed by the tremendous loyalty and messages of support he has received from his fans in the UK and is terribly disappointed not to have been able to perform the shows. Promoters were quick to thank all ticket holders for their patience over the last few weeks and confirmed that refunds of the full face value of the ticket would commence immediately. All ticket holders should apply to their point of ticket purchase for their refund.
The shows affected were:
Sheffield Arena - October 23, 2009
Newcastle Metro Radio Arena - October 24, 2009
London Wembley Arena - October 27, 2009
Liverpool Echo Arena - October 28, 2009
Dublin O2 Arena - October 30, 2009
