Following Sir Elton John’s cancellation of all upcoming shows from his current European tour including his much anticipated show at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time, Hyde Park this coming Friday due to appendicitis, AEG Live and The Royal Parks confirm that the show will go on with the remaining stellar line-up for free and existing ticket holders will receive a full refund.
Artists including Ray Davies, the former-Kinks frontman as well as Elvis Costello, Gabrielle Aplin and Nick Lowe will perform on The Great Oak Stage which only last Saturday saw the Rolling Stones play to a packed Hyde Park for the first time since 1969. Many more artists will play across the park on Friday in what is set to become another massive weekend for this event.
Existing ticket holders for Friday 12th July will automatically receive a full refund – the full value of their original ticket orders will be credited to the original payment method within 7 working days. And by bringing their existing tickets along to Barclaycard presents British Summer Time, Hyde Park on Friday 12th July only, they will be given free access. AEG Live is also making further tickets available for Friday 12th July – all fans need to do is log onto www.bst-hydepark.com/12julyupdate and print out a ticket at home to bring with them to Hyde Park. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis until capacity.
It has been confirmed earlier today that following a number of exploratory scans with his UK medical team, Sir Elton has been diagnosed with appendix abscess surrounding retrocaecal appendicitis. He is currently undergoing a course of intensive antibiotics and is expected to undergo surgery in the UK in the coming weeks once doctors have reduced toxins around the inflamed appendicitis site.
