“Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour”

Marking the end of half a century on the road, Elton John will be embarking on his last ever tour in September. With a run of over 300 shows scheduled, the icon will perform for fans all over the world with a new stage production.

Sharing the news with fans yesterday afternoon, the legendary performer said he wanted to focus more on his family. He intends to remain “creative” following the conclusion of his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour” in 2021.

It’s time to come off the road so I can fully embrace the next important chapter of my life.
