Elton John has led a commercially successful solo career since the 1970s, releasing 31 albums since 1969. The 75-year-old legend continues to shine in whatever he does. Elton recently announced his final North American tour dates.
Elton John and AEG Presents have announced the final North American dates of his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road The Final Tour” on the heels of his 75th birthday. The 11 new dates will “mark the final shows added to his North American tour,” according to the announcement.
Additional shows have been added in East Rutherford, NJ, Foxborough, MA, Toronto, Vancouver, BC, and Phoenix, as well as a third show at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Concerts have also been added in San Diego, Santa Clara, CA, and Tacoma, WA.
Elton John’s final North American show – a return to Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, the site of what is arguably his most iconic performance – on November 20 will be his 2,000th U.S. concert, capping off a touring run that has seen him play all 50 states, as well as 108 shows in top markets like New York City.
Elton John has performed in front of tens of millions of fans around the world, breaking multiple attendance and box-office records along the way, and reaching an unrivalled apex that is sure to remain unchallenged for years to come. Elton returned to the recorded music charts in the past year with his smash hit “Cold Heart (PNAU REMIX),” which charted at #7 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and #1 on its Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, as well as #1 on the U.K. singles chart.
Elton John’s final North American tour kicks off on July 15 in Philadelphia, PA, and concludes on November 17, 19, and 20 at Dodger Stadium with a three-night engagement. The epic 5-year tour kicks off on January 27 and 28, 2023, with two shows in Auckland, New Zealand, and soon-to-be-announced dates in Australia, before formally ending on July 8, 2023, in Stockholm, Sweden.
“It’s hard to believe that after tomorrow in St. Louis, I’ll have just a handful of shows left before I wrap up my final arena performances in the United States. This year will see my grand finale in North America, playing stadiums all around the country, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had. Thank you for sharing this journey with me. I cherish these memories we’re making together. It has been nothing short of incredible and I look forward to seeing you very soon one last time, on my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.”
