Elton John thanked the wrong city after a performance in Kansas City, Missouri, earlier this week.

Early Wednesday morning, a tweet from the music icon’s account featured a series of photos from John’s performance at Kansas City’s T-Mobile Center along with a sweet message for the attendees.

“What a great night @tmobilecenter in Arkansas City!” the tweet from Elton’s Twitter account read. “Thank you to everyone who came down – you were all amazing.”

It’s unclear if Elton himself or someone on his team hit “Send” on the erroneous tweet. Arkansas City, Kansas, is located about 226 miles southwest of Kansas City, Missouri.

A rep for Elton John did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

There’s also a second Arkansas City in Arkansas, near the Mississippi state line. 

The T-Mobile Center’s management fired off a reply to the “Rocketman” singer, ignoring the mention of the wrong city.

“Kansas City [loves] Elton John,” the arena’s message said.

The legendary musician is currently embarking on his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour, which will see him perform across the U.S. and in Canada and Europe.
