Tickets for Elton John’s London concert for his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour are on sale today.
Lucky fans will be able to see the legendary artist’s latest London show on June 24, 2022.
The plan was to play 300 concerts over three years, but this was interrupted by the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.
“I thought it was the right time to thank all my fans around the world and then say goodbye and take a break. It doesn’t mean I’m not going to be creative anymore,” John said of the shows.
The 74-year-old said if he played live again after completing the Yellow Brick Road tour, it would be “a residence like Kate Bush.”
“I don’t want to come out with a moan: I want to come out with a big bang.”
John still plans to continue making records and releasing music after the tour ends.

Elton John will release his new album The Lockdown Sessions
Elton John is releasing a collaborative album with special guests such as Lil Nas X, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Stevie Wonder, he announced earlier this month.
Lock sessions, a collection of 16 songs, will be released on October 22 by EMI Universal.
The pandemic project was driven by John who had to stop his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour in March 2020 and by his Apple Music talk show “Rocket Hour,” in which he spoke with many of the prominent artists.
“The last thing I expected to do during the blockade was make a record,” he said in a statement. “But as the pandemic went on, one-off projects kept popping up and I ended up with a selection of really interesting and diverse things that were completely different from everything I know, things that took me out of my comfort zone into completely new territory.
“I realized that there was something strangely familiar about work like this. At the beginning of my career, in the late sixties, I worked as a session musician. Working with different artists during the blockade reminded me. I would go back to full circle: I was a musician again. And it was still a blast. “
