Fans rushed to comment on the post, with one saying: "Not long now until I see my hero perform." Another remarked: "This picture makes me happyyy!!!" A third person said: "Back at it! We love to see it."
Elton, 74, announced his final set of performances, titled the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour - The Final Tour, in 2018, and had planned to take his music around the world one final time. However, due to the pandemic and ongoing health issues, the tour was pushed back on various occasions.

Speaking at the HELLO! Inspiration Awards back in October, David divulged: "[Elton's] hip is quite sore. He's been soldiering on for a long time, and he really was devastated to have to reschedule the next three months of shows.
"But your health has to come first and I don't think he would have been able to finish the tour if he wasn't going to go in and have the hip surgery done so I'm actually really relieved and excited," he continued.
"Then he'll be able to go back on the road and be pain-free and then everybody will get a better show and he'll be happier."
The singer had been due to play cities in Britain and Europe last year, followed by US shows in 2022, but said a fall on a hard surface earlier this year has left him in "considerable pain and discomfort".
