With an unparalleled career that redefined the cultural landscape and saw over 300 million albums sold, Elton John is (after two years of COVID interruptions) back on stage. Elton embarked on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in September 2018 – its milestone, multi-year itinerary comprising over 300 shows across five continents.
Hailed by fans and critics worldwide, the Farewell… performances have left audiences spellbound, a truly daring and intimate celebration of an incredible 50-year career. Currently on the road in North America, Elton will perform his final concert on US soil at Los Angeles’ iconic Dodger Stadium on November 20.
To witness a musical icon live on stage is a rare privilege. Elton’s legendary catalogue – including beloved songs ‘Bennie and the Jets’, ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Crocodile Rock’, ‘Philadelphia Freedom’ and many, many more – are showcased in a live musical masterpiece concert, one which also celebrates his collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin, their pairing one of the great song-writing partnerships of all time.
Elton’s love of Australia and New Zealand was on full display when the Farewell…tour first reached Australasia in November 2019, with a staggering 34 Australian and six New Zealand dates announced and over 705,000 tickets sold across a three-month period. Fans were treated to some of the most joyful and celebratory concerts Elton’s ever performed in the region, his hit laden set garnering rave reviews in both nations.
