Elton John ends his world tour “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” and is back on stage after his enforced break.

Superstar Elton John (74) celebrated his comeback on Wednesday evening (January 19) and was back on stage for the first time after a forced break. After two years he has resumed his farewell tour “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” in New Orleans. The world tour originally started in September 2018 and had to be suspended due to the corona pandemic and John’s hip surgery. Now the tour continues.

The tour has started in the United States and will also take the singer to Frankfurt and Leipzig in May 2022. In spring 2023 he will come to Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Mannheim and Cologne. A total of 95 concerts are scheduled over two years. In homage to its earlier appearance in 1975, the final leg in North America will be held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. There alone he will play more than 40 concerts.

After the tour it’s over

After his last tour he wants to spend more time with his family. They include his husband David Furnish, 59, and their sons Zachary, 11, and Elijah, 9. “I have to be with them”, explained the music legend in an interview with the show “Today”. “I’ll be 76 when the tour is over. I don’t know how much time I have left on Earth after that.” Every day is “a bonus”.
