Elton John is finally set to mark his final musical tour, which he announced three years ago, but the pandemic spoiled John’s plans. However, the singer has recently announced the dates for his final tour- “Farewell Yellow Brick Road.”
Earlier, the tour was scheduled for 2020, which began in New Zealand. The remaining tour was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic. The tour will now begin in autumn next year, which will first cover the European countries. Elton will visit Frankfurt, Germany on 27th May 2022, followed by performances at Liverpool, Milan, Paris, Bristol and other European regions.
After that, John will move back to North America and cover the entire continent from 15th July 2022, and will wrap it up in November 2022. The North American tour will begin from Philadelphia and end up in Los Angeles. For his final farewell tour, Elton John will perform in Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, Toronto, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Washington, Vancouver, Houston, Phoenix, and other cities.
The singer announced the dates on social media, and you can check the tour dates below-
Here they are – my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe! This has been an incredible tour so far and I'll be going out in the biggest possible way. I can't wait to see you all on the road one last time 🚀🚀🚀

Announcing the tour dates via a video on Facebook, 74 years old singer John said, ““I’ve been enjoying time at home with my family. But I really miss being on the road.”
John also wrote in a statement, “The shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever 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.”
“This has been an incredible tour so far, full of the most amazing highs, and I look forward to making more wonderful memories with you at these final shows. To all my friends down under, we’ll be seeing you too. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you in your town.” John wrote.
Elton added, “Whether it’s next summer in Frankfurt or at the legendary Dodger Stadium for the grand finale in the United States, I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time.”
