Elton John Thanks Wrong City On Tour In Social Media Gaffe
While on his worldwide Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, Elton John’s team made a harmless but embarrassing mistake when a tweet from the musician’s account thanked the wrong city after a show at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
The since-deleted tweet read “What a great night @tmobilecenter in Arkansas City!” and thanked the fans who attended, probably giving some Arkansas City fans a fright that they might have missed out on a great show.
Arkansas City, Kansas is hundreds of miles away from Kansas City, Missouri, but given the rush and pressure of a multiple-country tour, it’s not surprising to think that the pop star or a manager might have sent it out too quickly and got the name mixed up.
People online took the mistake in good fun, and the singer’s account issued a correction soon after.
What a great night @tmobilecenter in Kansas City!
Thank you to everyone who came down – you were all amazing 😍
