These new tour dates complete the second year of the North American leg of Elton’s three-year worldwide tour, counting 43 dates in 2020. The Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour will be making stops in new cities across North America such as Hershey, Pennsylvania; Greensboro, North Carolina; Knoxville, Tennessee; Fargo, North Dakota; and North Little Rock, Arkansas.

In addition to the new markets, Elton will return to cities including St. Louis, Toronto, Miami, Chicago, Houston and Kansas City.

The tour will conclude in 2021 and is promoted by AEG Presents.

John wraps 2019 with what he says is one of his most successful years to date. In addition to the incredible success of the tour, his biographical movie “Rocketman” has drawn commercial success and rave reviews, as has Elton’s memoir, “Me,” which hit No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list.

The Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour marks 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 September 8, 2018 in Allentown, Pennsylvania, the tour has since then received rave reviews in every market, according to a news release. 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.”

John’s music 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.
