This isn’t the first fall John has suffered in recent years. The five-time Grammy winner previously pushed back the remainder of his 2021 tour dates to 2023 after he "fell awkwardly on a hard surface.”

The fall left his hip in "considerable pain and discomfort," and though he underwent physio and specialist treatment, he had limited mobility and had to undergo surgery.

"I have been advised to have an operation as soon as possible to get me back to full fitness and make sure there are no long-term complications," he said in a statement at the time.

Months later, John further explained the extent of his injuries.

"I wouldn't be 100% fit, I wouldn't be 100% confident, because I'm in pain most of the time with my hip," he said of postponing the dates. "I can't move sideways, can't get in and out of a car, and the decision had to be made, because I wouldn't want to go onstage and give less than 100 percent."

John added that it was "better to get it done now" when it came to undergoing surgery.
