Legendary pop musician Elton John, 76, experienced a mishap in his French residence and had to be hospitalized, according to his representative, as the Daily Wire reported.

While spending time at his villa in Nice, France, John had a fall that required medical attention.

Following the incident, he was rushed to the Princess Grace Hospital's orthopedic facility in Monaco on a Sunday for a safety checkup, Page Six reported.

His representative stated, "We can confirm that following a slip yesterday at his home in the South of France, 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," he added.

Reflections on a Storied Career

John had recently been in France, unwinding with his family after wrapping up his notable "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour in July.

Reflecting on his decades-long illustrious journey, he shared his sentiments in Stockholm, Sweden, during his last concert.

He remarked, "I've had the most wonderful career, beyond belief. Fifty-two years of pure joy playing music. How lucky am I to play music?"

Elton John emphasized the importance of his fans in his journey.

He credited them for purchasing his music across various formats and, even more crucially, for attending his live shows, which he passionately loves performing.

During his grand finale, the audience was treated to iconic numbers, including "Your Song" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road."

 John on Ending His Touring Journey

Following the concert, the recipient of five Grammy awards shared with Entertainment Weekly that he was grappling with the realization that his touring days had come to an end.

John said, "I don't think it will sink in for a while yet that I've finally finished touring."

"I can't tell you how much I'm going to miss the fans and how much their support has humbled me — it will stay with me forever," he added.

Diving into memories, John looked back at the initiation of his final tour in 2018.

John admitted that he could not have predicted the vast array of experiences, both good and challenging, that the tour and even the broader world would go through in the subsequent five years.

He acknowledged the unwavering presence of his fans, who consistently supported him, showed patience, and turned up for every single concert.
