Elton John Announces Extensive Farewell World Tour

Elton John has announced his massive “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” world tour, which will mark the legendary singer-songwriter’s retirement from touring over a three-year period of over 300 shows. The tour kicks off September 8 in Allentown, PA.

“It’s time to come off the road so I can fully embrace the next important chapter of my life,” John says in a press release. “Performing live fuels me and I’m ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe. I plan to bring the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades to my final tour. After the tour finishes, I’m very much looking forward to closing off that chapter of my life by saying farewell to life on the road. I need to dedicate more time to raising my children.”

The initial dates run through June 2019, with the North American and first batch of European dates included. The tour will also hit Asia, and Australasia in 2019-20 and South America in 2020 before returning to Europe and the UK in late 2020 and North America again in 2021. The first round of North American gigs include stops at New York’s Madison Square Garden and Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center, plus venues in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, St. Louis, Denver, Portland, OR, Nashville, Texas, Florida and many more.

See the announced dates below, along with a retrospective video for the tour that recounts some of John’s most celebrated compositions. Tickets for the initial shows go on sale next Friday, February 2, with American Express pre-sales beginning tomorrow, January 25, at 10am local time.
