Speaking of the UK dates Elton John says “This tour will take me to a lot of places that hold a special place in my heart, but the UK shows will be amongst the highlights of the entire tour. The UK is where my heart is, and it will always be home. To get the opportunity to celebrate some of the incredible moments we’ve shared over the years with my British fans will be very special indeed. These homecoming shows will be emotional, but a lot of fun.”
Kicking off in the U.S. in September, the ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour has already been greeted with a wealth of praise from critics and fans alike. The three year tour will consist of more than 350 shows across five continents, hitting North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australasia before reaching its conclusion in 2021. These dates mark the superstar’s last-ever tour and the end of half a century on the road for one of pop culture’s most enduring performers. Elton’s new stage production will take his fans on a musical and highly visual journey spanning a 50-year career of hits like no one has ever seen before.
