Elton John has assured his fans that he is in “top health”, ]despite being pictured in a wheelchair ahead of his performance at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The music icon’s pre-recorded performance will be shown at tomorrow’s celebrations at Buckingham Palace.
However, fans had been growing concerned, as they spotted photos of Elton in a wheelchair.
Taking to Instagram, Elton John insisted that he was in “top health”. He also dismissed reports that he was “looking frail”, accusing tabloids of running a “silly story”.
He wrote, “I want to thank all my fans for reaching out to ask about my health, after the tabloids ran a silly story about my [sic] ‘looking frail’ in a wheelchair”.
The singer also added, “The true story is that I’m in top health, loving my shows and playing and singing at my very best. I give 100% every night and never want to disappoint, especially after everyone has waited so long to get back to seeing shows”.
“Your response to every show has been phenomenal and I’m loving every minute of it”.
