It is with great excitement that Elton John announces a further date for his award-winning Elton John Farewell Yellow Brick Road: The Final Tour. Elton will play a night at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, Cork on Friday 1st July 2022, which will be the final time he performs on tour in Ireland. This follows last month’s announcement that Elton will conclude his world-famous tour at major stadiums which will kick off on 27 May, 2022 in Frankfurt. The Final Tour will make stops in Europe in major cities such as Milan, Paris, Liverpool and more. Elton will then travel across the pond to take his final bow in North America, playing in major cities including Vancouver, Toronto, Chicago and more. The North American run will kick off at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on 15 July, 2022 before concluding with back-to-back performances at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on 19 and 20 November, 2022 — commemorating his iconic performance at the historic venue in October 1975. 2023 kicks off with two shows in Auckland New Zealand on 27 and 28 January, followed by soon-to-be-announced dates in Australia before the epic 4-year tour formally concludes there later that year.

Announcing the final dates of his tour on social media, Elton John said, “Hello, all you wonderful fans out there. I’m coming to you today with an announcement I’ve been working towards for, well, all my life: 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. 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. 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.”
