Tour Of The Week: Elton John

Elton John will bring his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour to the UK next summer. Elton John tickets are on sale now, priced from £45.00 plus booking fees.

Either side of his previously confirmed shows at Dublin’s 3Arena, the legendary singer-songwriter will perform at Hove Central County Ground on June 9 and Cardiff City Stadium on June 15, following spring dates across mainland Europe.

“I am very happy to announce the launch of my UK Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour with concerts in Hove and Cardiff,” John said. “The audiences in the South Coast and Wales have always been some of the most welcoming and exciting I have played in front of over the past forty-two years and the band and I are so excited to say goodbye in the most fantastic way. It’s going to be amazing!

“My priorities have changed in my life. My priorities now are my children, my husband, my family. I thought the time is right to say thank you to my fans and say goodbye, ” John said about his decision to stop touring. “In 2015, David and I sat down with a school schedule and I thought, I don’t want to miss too much of this. It doesn’t mean I’m not going to be creative, I’m just not going to tour anymore.”

After 50 years of performing around the world, the legendary singer-songwriter confirmed his retirement from the road at a live-streamed event in New York at the start of the year, announcing that he plans to play over 300 concerts in multiple countries for the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, which kicked off in North America earlier this month and is set to run until 2021 with UK and European shows in 2019.
