Elton John was recently spotted in a wheelchair. A cause for concern? That’s what the musician says about his state of health.

Ever since Elton John (75) was spotted in a wheelchair at Leipzig Airport, fans have been worried about his health. The musician is now giving the all-clear on Instagram. He is “in the best of health,” he assures in his latest post. Explaining the wheelchair performance, he said: “It was an extremely long walk to the plane and my team kindly provided me with a wheelchair so I could rest my hip after the show. That’s it folks.”

Elton John also emphasizes that he loves his shows, playing and singing and gives 100 percent every night. He “doesn’t want to disappoint anyone, especially after everyone has waited so long to be able to watch shows again.” The reactions to the shows are “phenomenal” and he “loves every minute of it”. He is already looking forward to the concert in Milan at the weekend. The Brit ends the post with a thank you “for your kind words of support”.

Elton John’s final world tour

Elton John is currently on a big farewell tour. This began in September 2018, but had to be interrupted for almost two years due to the corona pandemic and a hip injury to the singer. In mid-January, he finally continued the “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour. This also took him to Frankfurt and Leipzig in May. In spring 2023 he will also come to Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Mannheim and Cologne. A total of 95 concerts are scheduled over two years.

After his last tour, Elton John wants to spend more time with his family. They include his husband David Furnish, 59, and their sons Zachary, 11, and Elijah, 9. “I have to be with them,” said the music legend in an interview with the show “Today”. “I’ll be 76 when the tour is over. I don’t know how much time I have left on Earth after that.” Every day is “a bonus”.
