Elton John Adds More Shows To ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ 2023 Tour

After announcing a slew of new Australian dates for early next year as part of his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour, Elton John has announced additional shows in three Australian cities, all of which will take place in January 2023.

John will play a second show at Newcastle’s McDonald Jones Stadium on Sunday, 8th January, Melbourne’s AAMI Park on Saturday, 14th January, and at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on Tuesday, 17th January. These join previous dates announced at all three venues, as well as a show at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday, 21st January.

Elton John’s Farewell Tour to Conclude in 2023

Elton John first brought his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour to Australia in late 2019 and early 2020, initially saying it would be his final visit to the country. Although he completed the Australian run, the New Zealand leg of the tour was cut short due to illness. Rescheduled shows for Christchurch and Auckland have been announced, and the Australian encore performances are a little cherry on top for fans of the Rocket Man.

“I promised back in 2020 that when we returned, we’d take the opportunity to play a few encore shows,” John said in a video shared with fans. “I know the last tickets sold fast, and I want to be able to say farewell to you all.”

See John’s upcoming Australian tour dates, including the three new shows, below. Tickets for all shows are on sale today (1st August), with timing staggered. See here for details.
