Elton John today announces a further 2020 arena date to his colossal Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. A sixth date has been added at London’s The O2 on December 14th due to unprecedented demand. The news of the new date comes as the tour nears its 100th show in Lille tomorrow (18th June), and by the time he has played Paris on June 20th, over 1.5 million people will have seen the show since it began in September. 

Tickets for the shows will be on sale from 10am on Friday 21st June. Eligible American Express Cardmembers can take advantage of priority booking from 10am on Wednesday 19th June 2019. Visit axs.com/amexpresale to book. T&Cs apply.

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.

A tribute to Shelley Lazar

Incorrigible… Irreverent… we had hoped Indestructible - but definitely… IRREPLACEABLE.

The Beloved Ticket Queen - A woman with the rudest mouth (loved by all) and the purest heart - A heart big enough to embrace the entire music business - and beyond.

The ultimate professional – with care and principles - who managed to wrap a blanket of FUN around everyone she met.

Her kindness and generosity was simply in her soul - there every day of her life - and given with love.

A ground breaker – who came from the Bill Graham School – and followed his lead to be the biggest and the best. She also led the way for other women to follow - courageous and determined. There could be no better role model.

Shelley had an inner glow – that lit up every space with her spirit – and made every day a better day!

We’ve had the honour and privilege of working with her for decades.

A super business woman - brilliant mind - but with a gentle delivery that never failed to seal the deal. There were many phases in her life – including as a head mistress.

In fact there was nothing she couldn’t do if she put her mind to it.

Treasuring so many miles on our tour bus - filled with Shelley’s stories and laughter – never a dull moment.

We only wish she had written the book - but in all honesty many stories couldn’t be written down!

She knew everyone – and was universally adored.

Quite simply we loved her. Like everyone else – we are finding it almost impossible to believe – and coming to terms with a loss as great as this - will take a long time.

She will remain in our hearts for all time – and every day there will be something that will remind us of her. We will be grateful for that – and the many pictures and memories we will hold on to. Our hearts and thoughts are with her family and her amazing SLO Team who will continue to honour her legacy.

The saddest day – for the entire Marshall Arts Family.
