San Jose Postponed - By Billy This Time
Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Billy Joel and Elton John have postponed yet another Bay Area date on their “Face 2 Face” tour: a concert originally scheduled for Tuesday at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. They had previously bailed out of a gig set for this past Saturday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland.
Organizers are working to set make-up dates for the two concerts. All ticket-holders are being asked to hold on to their tickets until more information is available regarding the proposed rescheduled engagements.
The Oakland date was postponed due to concerns over John’s health - he’s been battling a serious case of e-coli bacterial infection and influenza and was advised by his doctor to postpone this Oakland concert, according to promoter Live Nation. This time around, it’s Joel who isn’t feeling well enough to play San Jose. According to another press release from Live Nation, Joel is unable to tour due to undisclosed “medical reasons.”
