Elton John will bring his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour to Kansas City when he performs at the T-Mobile Center on Feb. 1.

That is, if COVID cooperates.

On Tuesday, the 74-year-old pop icon postponed shows scheduled for that day and the next in Dallas after testing positive for COVID-19. He was experiencing only minor symptoms and is fully vaccinated and boosted, the Dallas venue, American Airlines Center, said in a brief statement.

John said on Instagram that he planned to perform Jan. 29 in North Little Rock, Arkansas. He also has a concert scheduled for Jan. 30 in Oklahoma City.

“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,” he posted.

Tickets for the 8 p.m. concert at the T-Mobile Center are $69.50-$224.50 and are available at t-mobilecenter.com.

John also brought the tour here almost three years ago, on Feb. 13, 2019, when the building was still the Sprint Center. This show was originally scheduled for July 8, 2021, but was postponed because of the pandemic. He started back on the tour last week.
