The 76-year-old singer found himself in the orthopedic department of the Princess Grace Hospital Center in Monaco, receiving treatment for minor injuries sustained during the fall.
The incident occurred when Sir Elton had a slip at his South of France residence. A spokesperson for the artist confirmed the events, stating, “Elton visited the local hospital as a precautionary measure.” Swiftly following thorough examinations, he was promptly released in the morning, already back home and in good health.
Throughout the summer, Sir Elton, along with his husband David Furnish and their two children, has been enjoying their time in France.
This follows the conclusion of his extensive Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in July. Just a month before that, he mesmerized the audience with a headline performance on the Pyramid Stage at the Glastonbury Festival.
Although the Farewell tour marked the end of his live touring endeavors, the possibility of sporadic one-off performances in the future remains open.

Having captured hearts since his debut album release in 1969, Sir Elton John stands as one of the UK’s most cherished musicians. His catalog boasts iconic hits like “Tiny Dancer,” “I’m Still Standing,” “Your Song,” and “Are You Ready For Love?”
