On Saturday night Elton welcomed his audience to the first date on the 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour' in Allentown, PA.

“Good evening Allentown and welcome to the very first show on the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. This is quite a night for us and for me especially because this has been two-and-a-half years in the making and thinking about, and I hope you enjoy what we’re gonna play for you and show for you."

“Your Song,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Someone Saved My Life Tonight,” “Tiny Dancer,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” “The Bitch is Back,” “Rocket Man,” “Daniel,” and “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” — all songs John has undoubtedly played hundreds, if not thousands, of times — are performed with a joy of someone who still really loves what they do and has every intention of saying goodbye to these timeless pieces properly.

The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will play more than 300 shows in front of an estimated six-million people across five continents before ending in 2021.
