Elton was due to kick off the latest leg of the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in Berlin before going on to Munich, Hamburg, Mannheim, and Cologne.
However, because venues in Germany won't soon be permitted to reopen to 100 percent capacity (which is necessary for Elton's sold-out shows), these dates have been postponed until 2023.
So the concerts in Berlin's Mercedes-Benz Arena, originally set for October 17, 18, and 20, 2020--then rescheduled for September 1, 3, and 4, 2021--have been postponed again. The new dates are, respectively, May 8, 2023; May 10, 2023; and May 11, 2023.
Another example is Hamburg's Barclaycard Arena. The September 11th gig is to take place on the second of May in 2023. The show on September 12, 2021, is now set for May 4, 2023, and the September 14th event has been postponed until May 5, 2023.
Tickets that have been purchased will remain valid.
