Elton announced the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour at New York’s Gotham Hall in January 2018. Encompassing 5 continents, and more than 300 dates, this 3-year-long tour started in September 2018 and marks his retirement from touring after more than 50 years on the road. In May 2019 it was named Billboard’s Top Rock Tour.
To date, Elton has delivered more than 4,000 performances in more than 80 countries since launching his first tour in 1970. 2019 has already seen the release of Rocketman, a fantasy musical motion picture of his life and his autobiography Me will be published later in the year.
