The reality of Elton John retiring hasn’t really sunk in yet. Now, it’s starting to feel a bit more real.
Sir Elton announced his three-year farewell tour back in 2018, but that got put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Appropriately titled Farewell Yellow Brick Road: The Final Tour, the trek gave John the opportunity to take one last lap around the globe to say goodbye to his fans.
Now that live music is making his return, Elton has shared his final tour dates.
Elton John will kick off the final stretch of his tour in Europe in May, 2022 before moving to North America. The North American portion of the tour begins on July 15 in Philadelphia and will see John perform across the country for the remainder of the year.
His final American shows will take place in Los Angeles as he’ll perform on November 19 and 20 at Dodger Stadium. “This has been an incredible tour so far and I'll be going out in the biggest possible way, with the most spectacular production I've ever had. I can't wait to see you all on the road one last time,” John wrote in an Instagram post announcing the final dates.
While John will formally wrap up the tour in 2023 in New Zealand and Australia, the dates at Dodger Stadium represent the last time he’ll perform in America.
Tickets for John’s newly announced North American dates will go on sale Wednesday, June 30 at 10 AM local time. You can find a full list of tour dates below and purchase tickets here.
