|Elton’s Dubai concert postponed
Thursday, December 8 2016
Elton will now come to the UAE in 2017 as he’s been struck down with the flu.
Elton was meant to be performing in Dubai on December 15, 2016, but it’s just been announced that it has been postponed. The Rocket Man has been advised by his doctor to cancel the remainder of his tour dates due to a flu (and general fatigue).
The singer is said to want to give Middle East fans his best possible performance, so will now play at the Autism Rocks Arena on Friday January 20, 2017. Fans who already have tickets should retain their current tickets as they will be valid also for the new date, and people holding these will also receive a signed merchandise item from Elton John when attending the show.
For those who have tickets and can’t make it, a full refund will be available from the point of purchase (but will be subject to the terms & conditions of the ticket distributor). Promoter 117Live says people should give ticketing companies a few days to respond to enquiries on exact refund details.
“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,” said Sir Elton. “Please accept my apologies and come enjoy the show next month!”
