Elton John’s “final tour dates”
“Hello, all you wonderful fans out there”, Elton said. “I’m coming to you today with an announcement I’ve been working towards for, well, all my life: the shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe”.
“I’m going to go out in the biggest possible way, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career”, he added.
“Whether it’s next summer in Frankfurt or at the legendary Dodger Stadium for the grand finale in the United States, I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time”, he continued. “This has been an incredible tour so far, full of the most amazing highs, and I look forward to making more wonderful memories with you at these final shows”.
“To all my friends down under, We’ll be seeing you too. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you in your town”.
Elton John has announced his final tour dates, before retiring from touring in 2018 after half a century on the road.
“My priorities have changed”, he said at a New York press conference. “My priorities are my children, my husband and my family”.
That 1973 hit was also the first of many that Elton had with long time collaborator Bernie Taupin who recently celebrated his 70th birthday with Elton and Alice Cooper. More here.
