British pop star Elton John has announced upcoming concert dates in Europe and North America after a coronavirus-related interruption on his multi-year farewell tour.
British singer-songwriter (“Rocketman”) will resume his concert series “Elton John Farewell Yellow Brick Road” on May 27, 2022 in Frankfurt. The 74-year-old has chosen Leipzig as the only other venue in Germany, where he wants to perform on May 29.
Concerts originally planned in Berlin or Mannheim are no longer on the list. Elton John will perform the final concert on his European and North American tour in Los Angeles in November 2022. Shows are scheduled to take place in New Zealand and Australia in 2023.
In a video message, Elton John addressed his fans directly on Wednesday. “The performances announced today will be my last tour of North America and Europe,” he said, adding, “I will really give it my all, with my most exciting productions ever, giving the best performance possible and playing in the places I really love means a lot during my career.” .
