“As a thank you, he’s giving the fans exactly what they could want in a final hurrah: some of his all-time biggest hits played with his classic gusto and draped in glitz.” – Billboard

"Elton John’s set on this tour is a beautifully curated trip through his golden era, with enough deep cuts to keep the musicians and veteran fans on their toes, yet so packed with hits that he’d reeled off ‘Bennie and the Jets,’ ‘Tiny Dancer,’ ‘I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues,’ ‘Border Song’ and ‘Philadelphia Freedom’ in the first half hour — and he’d barely scraped the surface.” – Variety

NEW YORK, NY (June 23, 2021) – It is with great excitement that Elton John announces the final dates for his award-winning Elton John Farewell Yellow Brick Road: The Final Tour in North America and Europe.

I’m going to go out in the biggest possible way, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career.
