“It’s time to come off the road so I fully embrace the next chapter of my life,” said Elton John of his decision to quit touring for good. After more than half a century, Elton John is performing a three-year final Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, which will start in the US in September. It will then make its way to Australia and conclude in 2021.

John will perform more than 300 shows across five continents, from North America to Europe, and you can expect all the hits.

“After the tour finishes, I’m very much looking forward to coming off the road so I can dedicate more time to raising my children,” he said in an official statement.

Information on which Australian cities he will be visiting, and when he will be performing here, has not yet been released.
