“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.
