Promoter 117 Live has announced that Sir Elton John fans will have to wait for another month to watch the music legend perform at his Wonderful Crazy Night Tour in Dubai.
According to a press release by the company, the artist has been advised rest after a medical examination to avoid escalating his current flu to full exhaustion and fatigue. As such his remaining tour dates have been pushed and he will now perform in Dubai on Friday 20 January 2017 instead.
The promoter has advised fans to retain their current tickets for the new date. These fans will also receive a signed merchandise item from Elton John when attending the show. For those are unable to attend the show on the new date, a full refund will be made available from the point of purchase subject to the terms and conditions of the ticket distributor.
In an official statement, Sir Elton John said: “I am so looking forward to performing in Dubai with my band and want to assure my fans that giving me time to recover to my full strength and stamina will ensure the best and most memorable show on January 20th. -please accept my apologies and come enjoy the show next month!”
Thomas Ovesen, CEO at 117Live added: “This was going to be our big end of season celebration but we of course want Sir Elton John to be well and able to give us his amazing 2 hours + live show and so we will now instead look forward to celebrating the beginning of the New Year with him and his phenomenal live band”. He continues, “fans should hold on to their tickets and at the show we will have a special signed appreciation handed out to them for being so understanding – fans who were not able to attend the initial date can now get their January 20th tickets from all the usual ticket outlets.
