Today, Elton John announced his "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour, a 300-date victory lap to cap off a nearly 50-year career. John will make a stop at Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit on Friday, Oct. 12, just over a month into a tour that will span three years.
“Performing live fuels me and I’m ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe,” John said in a press release announcing the tour. “I plan to bring the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades to my final tour. After the tour finishes, I’m very much looking forward to closing off that chapter of my life by saying farewell to life on the road. I need to dedicate more time to raising my children.”
