Elton cancels European "Red Piano" dates
Tuesday, May 22 2007

Elton John has been forced to cancel the European "Red Piano" dates, blaming the promoter for "failing to guarantee" the gigs.

Earlier this month, Elton postponed his Vitoria and Seville, Spain, gigs from 20 and 18 May 2007 until September 2007, due to technical problems with the tour's equipment.

Now the "Red Piano" tour has been beset with further problems, so Elton has pulled a string of gigs. A statement says, "The promoter has been unable to guarantee to put on the shows, resulting in us having to take this very difficult decision. We do of course appreciate that Elton's fans will be disappointed at this news, and we are already looking into the possibility of returning to the affected cities in the very near future."

The cancelled shows are Venice, Italy; Berlin, Germany; Moscow, Russia; Paris, France; and also the previously rescheduled Seville gig. The remainder of Elton's shows have not been affected.
