Elton John will undergo surgery to replace his right hip on Saturday.
The rock ‘n roll icon told Billboard, “It’s been long overdue and I can’t wait to get it done, rehab and get back to normal. It’s just wear and tear. My left hip is the hip of a two-year old and my right hip is the hip of a 90-year old.”
Sir Elton suffered a recent fall that only made his hip issue worse. That has resulted in the postponement of the fall portion of his ‘Farwell Yellow Brick Road’ tour in Europe.Elton is hoping to return to the road on January 19th in New Orleans.
Elton’s new album of collaborations, ‘The Lockdown Sessions,’ will be released on October 22nd.
