The Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour kicked off in the U.S. over a year ago in September 2018, and has 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 takes his fans on a musical and highly visual journey spanning a 50-year career of hits like no one has ever seen before. Throughout the Farewell Yellow Brick road tour fans have also been given the chance to experience Elton’s tour in a unique and brand new way thanks to innovative UK tech startup PEEX. Providing a superior quality audio experience, PEEX enables fans to create their own enhanced five channel mix of the live concert sound, whilst remaining truly immersed in the energy of the performance.

2019 has already seen the release of 'Rocketman', a critically acclaimed epic fantasy musical motion picture of his life which has also been a huge box office smash, already taking close to $200m at the box office office. Elton’s forthcoming autobiography ‘Me’ will be published globally on 15th October. September 2019 saw Royal Mail issue a set of 12 stamps today as a tribute to Elton being one of the most popular and enduring music artists of all time. Elton is one of only two individual music artists to be featured in a dedicated stamp issue.
