The performance career of Elton John has concluded.
The iconic entertainer recently wrapped up his farewell tour with a sold-out crowd in Stockholm, Sweden.
Then he proceeded to take a nasty fall at his home in France, resulting in Elton John being hospitalized, reported Fox News.
Slip and Fall
Elton's farewell tour had a strong resemblance to the KISS farewell tour in that it was going on for several years encompassing hundreds of shows.
For Elton, it was five years and 330 gigs, and now he will perform in front of a crowd no more.
After wrapping up the tour, he traveled back to his home in France, then managed to injure himself in a slip and fall, reported USA Today.
Elton's representatives stated that the hospital trip was more precautionary than anything else, which is understandable considering his age (76).
His people further stated that he was discharged, is back home, and "He is doing healthy and doing well."
The final tour was delayed due to COVID and health problems for Elton John, so this is a long time coming.
He stated, "When we set off on my final tour in 2018, I couldn't have foreseen in my wildest dreams the twists and turns and the highs and lows this tour - and the whole world - would have experienced in the next 5 years. And every step of the way, my fans have been there. You have stuck with me, you have supported me, you have been patient and you have kept turning out for every single last show.
"Saturday night was magical. I'm trying to process it and I don't think it will sink in for a while yet that I'm finally finished touring. I can't tell you how much I'm going to miss you all and how much your support has humbled me - it will stay with me forever."
The tour wrapped up in July, of course, to a sold-out show.
I only got to see Elton John once in concert, but it was an incredible show in Philadelphia and one that I will never forget.
The man was an amazing… a well-earned rest.
