Sir Elton John has tested positive for Covid.

The musician, 74, apologised for having to reschedule a handful of his US tour dates and said it was a “massive disappointment” to move his shows.

In his Instagram statement to his 3.9million followers, the singer reassured everyone he was fully vaccinated and boosted.

He said he was only experiencing mild symptoms of Covid.

On his Instagram story, he said: “Hi everyone, wanted to send a message to let you know that I have contracted COVID and so have had to reschedule my shows in Dallas.

“If you have tickets, you’ll be contacted with the new dates really soon.

“It’s always a massive disappointment to move shows and I’m so sorry to anyone who’s been inconvenienced by this but I want to keep myself and my team safe.”

New dates would be issued soon for fans with tickets for the rescheduled gigs in Dallas.

Remaining upbeat, the musician hoped to be able to return to the stage for the Arkansas shows at the weekend.

He added: “Fortunately, I’m fully vaccinated and boosted and my symptoms are mild so I’m fully expecting to be able to make the Arkansas shows this weekend.

“As always, thank you for all your love and support and I can’t wait to see you all soon!”
