The Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tourmarks the superstar’s last-ever tour, the end of half a century on the road for one of pop culture’s most enduring performers. Kicking off to a sold-out crowd on Sept. 8, 2018 in Allentown, Pa., the tour has since received rave reviews in every market. Taking the audience on a magical journey through his career, the show features some of John’s most beloved songs from his legendary catalogue including, “Bennie and the Jets,” “Rocket Man,” “Tiny Dancer” and “Philadelphia Freedom.”
Hismusic has taken him to many places, opened many doors and inspired many passions in his life. The audience will experience a rare glimpse into John’s life and the deeply personal meaning behind some of his greatest hits, with mesmerizing, never-before-seen photos and videos shown throughout the show from his incredible 50-year career, according to a press release.
John wraps 2019 with one of his most successful years to date. In addition to the incredible popularity of the tour, the blockbuster biopic, “Rocketman,” has drawn commercial success and rave reviews, as has Elton’s memoir, “Me,” which hit number one on the New York Times Best Sellers list.
John’s career achievements to date are unsurpassed in their breadth and longevity. He is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with one diamond, 38 platinum or multi-platinum, and 26 gold albums, over 50 top 40 hits and he has sold more than 300 million records worldwide. He holds the record for the biggest-selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind” (1997), which sold over 33 million copies. “Diamonds - The Ultimate Greatest Hits” album, reached the top 5 of the U.K. album charts on its release in November 2017, becoming John’s 40th UK top 40 album in the process. This release celebrated 50 years of his song-writing partnership with Bernie Taupin. August 2018 saw John named as the most successful male solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 chart history, having logged 67 entries, including nine number ones and 27 top ten hits. John announced the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour at New York’s Gotham Hall in January 2018.
