Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Elton John has tested positive for COVID-19 and has postponed a pair of concerts at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

"Elton is fully vaccinated and boosted, and is experiencing only mild symptoms. Fans should hold on to their tickets as they will be honored at the rescheduled dates to be announced soon. Elton and the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour look forward to returning to the stage shortly," the venue said in a statement.

It remains unclear if John will be performing in Little Rock, Ark., on Saturday and in Oklahoma City on Sunday.

John first announced the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in 2018, stating that he will be retiring from touring after it is wrapped up. The tour has gone through multiple delays due to COVID-19 pandemic and a hip injury.

John last released a collaborative album titled The Lockdown Sessions in October that features guest appearances from Dua Lipa, Lil Nas X, Miley Cyrus and more.
