It looks like Sir Elton John's farewell is going to be extended a bit longer, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He has announced more postponements of dates on the North American leg of his "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour, including the show originally scheduled for June 11, 2020 at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.

A press release received via email from the Iowa Events Center/Wells Fargo Arena states "ticketholders of all 2020 postponed performances should hold onto their original tickets as new show date information for 2021 will be announced soon.  All original tickets will be honored at the rescheduled performances".

The press release confirms the decision was made for the safety and well-being of fans "in a time when health services are under increased pressure and with the concern that these gatherings continue to risk accelerating the spread of the Coronavirus."

Having seen him a few years back in Moline, I really enjoyed the show. Once this crisis is over, here's hoping others will get their chance.
