Elton John doesn’t need much introduction. The “Tiny Dancer” singer who also, lest we forget, pumped out the jams on Disney’s The Lion King
with “The Circle of Life,” “Can You Feel The Love Tonight,” and “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King,” announced Wednesday that he’ll be embarking on a farewell tour that is slated to hit an enormous 300 cities.
Kicking off the tour in the U.S. on September 8, Elton John will stop in San Antonio on Wednesday, December 12 at the AT&T Center. The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will span five continents, hitting North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australia before wrapping up in 2021.
“Performing live fuels me and I’m ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe,” said John in a press release. “I plan to bring the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades to my final tour. After the tour finishes, I’m very much looking forward to closing off that chapter of my life by saying farewell to life on the road. I need to dedicate more time to raising my children.”
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, February 2 at 10 am. Tickets and VIP packages can be purchased at eltonjohn.com
