ORIGINAL STORY: Elton John has announced a three-year farewell tour which will see him tour Australia (and the rest of the world) for the very last time.
After touring for over half a century, Sir Elton has announced he’ll be retiring from touring after one huge final ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour, which will include over 300 shows.
Australian tour promoters Chugg Entertainment have already confirmed the tour will hit Australia and New Zealand sometime between December 2019 and February 2020.
John last toured Australia between September and October 2017, but we’ve been told his final Australian and New Zealand tour will be “the most extensive tour he’s ever done of the countries”.
Announcing his farewell tour in a live-streamed event (which you can watch below), John told fans that while he’ll stay “creative” and will go out “with a bang”, he’s decided he’s “not going to be touring anymore”.
“I’m not going to be touring and travelling the world,” he said, before discussing his life with husband David Furnish and their two children.
“My priorities have changed in my life… my priorities now are my children and my husband and my family.”
Sir Elton first performed in Australia way back in October 1971. Stay tuned to Music Feeds for details of his upcoming final Australian tour.
