John, 76, slipped at his home and went to a local hospital as “a precautionary measure,” the representative said. He was discharged Monday morning and is back at home in Nice following checkups.
BBC News reports John has been spent the summer in France, after he finished his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour in July. He is with his husband, David Furnish, as well as their two sons, the outlet reported.
“We can confirm that following a slip yesterday at his home in the south of France, Elton visited the local hospital as a precautionary measure,” a representative for John confirmed to USA TODAY. “Following check ups, he was immediately discharged this morning and is now back at home and in good health.”
The minor accident comes two months after John delivered a stirring farewell performance at Glastonbury Festival in the U.K. The five-time Grammy winner played his final North American show last November at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
John previously underwent hip surgery after suffering a fall in 2021, which forced him to push back many of his tour dates. Speaking to USA TODAY in November 2020, he also said that longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin has sent him lyrics for potential new songs. Although he’s in no rush to put out yet another album.
“I haven’t felt the urge to do anything Elton-y at all,” John said at the time. “I’ve been spending time with my children and that is the silver lining in the dark cloud (of the pandemic). So I have the lyrics, they are really great lyrics and one day I will get around to doing it. I just don’t feel motivated. No one needs another Elton John album at the moment and I only want to write another Elton John album when I feel really, really motivated.”
After decades of touring, John announced that his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which he just concluded, would be his last. It had been delayed due to John’s health as well as the COVID-19 pandemic.
“When we set off on my final tour in 2018, I couldn’t have foreseen in my wildest dreams the twists and turns and the highs and lows this tour – and the whole world – would have experienced in the next 5 years. And every step of the way, my fans have been there. You have stuck with me, you have supported me, you have been patient and you have kept turning out for every single last show,” John shared to social media, of his final performance in July.
“Saturday night was magical. I’m trying to process it and I don’t think it will sink in for a while yet that I’m finally finished touring. I can’t tell you how much I’m going to miss you all and how much your support has humbled me – it will stay with me forever,” he concluded.
