Following the news of his hospitalization, Elton John is now back home in the picturesque city of Nice, located in France.

The renowned musician was rushed to the hospital on Sunday after having a bit of a mishap at his home. He was then discharged on Monday. His spokesperson said in a statement:

“Elton visited the local hospital as a precautionary measure.
“Following checkups, he was immediately discharged this morning and is now back at home and in good health.”

The 76-year-old singer recently concluded his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour on July 8 in Stockholm and grossed more than $939 million. This farewell tour marks the highest-grossing concert tour in history, which spanned multiple years, and even featured a headline performance at the iconic Glastonbury festival this past June. It’s been a remarkable chapter in his musical career.

During his final show, John told the Stockholm crowd:

“You have no idea how much that means to me — your beautiful words and kindness … it’s just amazing.
“I’ve had the most wonderful career, beyond belief. Fifty-two years of pure joy, playing music. How lucky am I to play music? But you know I wouldn’t be sitting here and talking to you if it wasn’t for you. You’ve bought the singles, the albums, the CDs, the cassettes — but most importantly, you’ve bought the tickets to the shows. And you know how much I love to play live. It’s been my lifeblood to play for you guys and you’ve been absolutely magnificent, thank you!”

John noted that although he retired from touring, it’s not the end for his music. He said:

“I will never be touring again but I may do something in the future, a one-off thing or … but that’s miles away.
“I want to appreciate my family, my sons, my husband, my family, everything. I’ve earned it and I don’t regret it tonight. But I want to say thank you to the band, the crew, everybody. I will miss you guys so much, but I will see you much quicker than you think.”
