Elton John's long yellow brick road to retirement just got a whole lot longer.

The legendary singer has announced makeup dates for two concerts he postponed this week in Tampa and Orlando due to an ear infection. The Tampa show will now take place Nov. 4, 2019 at Amalie Arena. The Orlando show is scheduled for March 18 at the Amway Center.

Why the discrepancy between shows in cities an hour and a half apart? That's a bit of a mystery, though it's possible the dates just didn't add up. John's current tour ends with two Florida shows in March, so it makes sense to tack the Orlando show on there. Amalie Arena currently has openings on its calendar on March 19 and 20, although it's possible another event is already scheduled for those days but has not been announced.

Either way, tickets to this week's postponed shows will still be good on the new dates, as will parking passes purchased through the venues or the city of Orlando. Hold onto your receipts until then.
