Elton John doubles capacity of Montreux show


Previously announced Montreux Jazz Festival dates consolidated to one larger venue on Saturday 29th June due to phenomenal demand.

Extra tickets on sale tomorrow at 12pm CET.

Elton John today announces that due to phenomenal demand he will be upscaling the venue for his Montreux Jazz Festival shows to the Stade de la Saussaz. He will now be playing one night at the 15,000 capacity Stade de la Saussaz on Saturday 29th June, as opposed to the previously announced two nights at 4,000 capacity Auditorium Stravinski on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June. The change of date and venue will allow almost double the amount of his fans to attend the show.

Tickets previously purchased for Sunday 30th June will be valid for Saturday 29th at Stade de la Saussaz. Fans should contact their ticket vendor for further details. Additional tickets for Saturday 29th June are on general sale from midday tomorrow.

The show will be the first time Elton has played Montreux Jazz Festival and the show on 29th June at Stade de al Saussaz will be by far the grandest show the festival has ever seen. This show forms part of the acclaimed ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour, Elton’s final global tour which has been attracting rave reviews since starting in the US in September 2018.

The ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour was announced at Gotham Hall, New York in January 2018. The first 76 dates sold out immediately after going on general sale, confirming that the farewell tour will be some of, if not the, hottest gig tickets of the next three years.

“The road to retirement has never looked or sounded so good.” Billboard

“Played with the passion and love of music of a young artist just starting out. Only he can mix it with the showmanship of 50 years of being one of music’s greatest entertainers. Combine those elements and you have a show that you will never forget..” Forbes

Having kicked off in the U.S. in September of last year to a hail of critical acclaim, the ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour will consist of more than 300 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, who was last year named as the most successful male solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 chart history, having logged 67 entries, including nine No. 1s and 27 Top 10s.

Over the course of his three-year FAREWELL YELLOW BRICK ROAD worldwide tour, Elton John will visit five continents and play over 300 concerts around the world. Please visit EltonJohn.com often for new concert announcements.
