Elton John, the legendary musician, feels that post-Brexit restrictions will cause the UK to lose a generation of talent.

The artist has expressed his dissatisfaction with the lack of progress on visa-free travel on numerous occasions.

Elton said: “I want to be clear that the issues of visa-free and permit-free touring aren’t about the impact on me, and artists who tour arenas and stadiums.”

“This gravest of situations is about the damage to the next generation of musicians and emerging artists, whose careers will stall before they’ve even started due to this infuriating blame game.”

“If I had faced the financial and logistical obstacles facing young musicians now when I started out, I’d never have had the opportunity to build the foundations of my career and I very much doubt I would be where I am today.”
