“After more than half a century on the road and an unparalleled career that has redefined the cultural landscape, Elton has announced details of his final tour.”
With those words, the legendary Elton John launched his final tour. The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour has made its way across North America and the final US performances will take place at Dodger Stadium over three nights in November.
Dodger Stadium is the perfect location for John to close out his tour as it was the venue for his iconic 1975 performance. His three-hour, 31-song set – which also featured him in a sequin Dodger uniform – included songs that remain favorites today: “Your Song,” “Rocket Man,” “Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” “Bennie and the Jets,” “Someone Saved My Life Tonight,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” and “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting.”
In the decades since, John has added countless hits to his collection and would have to play for several hours to capture them all! Of course that is not possible, but he has included new songs “I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues,” “Tiny Dancer,” “Sad Songs (Say So Much),” “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word,” and “I’m Still Standing” in recent performances.
While words like “legend” and “icon” get thrown around often, they truly apply to Elton John and his decades of music cannot be adequately described in one short story! This is a performance you MUST experience; a living legend saying farewell! You have three chances to catch John in Los Angeles before he vanishes; November 17th, 19th, and 20th.
