New Zealand and Australia snapped up tickets in the general public on sale this week, resulting in 9 sold out Australasian shows and more than 350,000 tickets already sold across the board.

“Australia and New Zealand, I can’t wait to be with you again”, said Sir Elton. “Your audiences have always been very generous towards me, and I know that this final tour will be the most memorable ever”.

“Australia and New Zealand have really embraced the announcement of Elton’s Farewell tour”, said promoter Michael Chugg. “We want to make sure that everyone gets a chance to experience the magic of seeing this incredible performer live, so we’ve added some new shows to what we know is going to be his best visit yet!” Complete with brand new stage production, and tour wardrobe designed by Italian fashion house Gucci, Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road global tour is intimate and personal, while also spectacular and daring.

Audiences will experience a rare glimpse into Elton’s life, and the deeply personal meaning behind some of his greatest hits, via mesmerising, never-before-seen images and videos displayed throughout the show from his incredible 50-year career.

He will be joined by longstanding band members Nigel Olsson on drums (part of Elton’s original three-piece band in 1970), esteemed musical director Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band a year later) on guitar, virtuoso Ray Cooper on percussion, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.

Comprising more than 300 shows across five continents, the milestone itinerary will stop in Europe, North America, Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand, and marks the last tour of its kind by the celebrated songwriter and iconic showman. Almost fifty years on from his debut Australian show, Elton John has played 196 concerts and performed to more than 1.5 million people across the country in that time.

“… the time is right to say thank you to my fans and say goodbye.” – Elton John

Garnering rave reviews at sell-out shows across North America, Elton John’s curtain call will be the last chance to catch this legendary performer touring in Australia.

More than a concert; an unforgettable memory! Tickets will go fast, don’t miss out on your spot at Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.

This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t.
