Elton John

Sir Elton Hercules John, CBE, is one of the most highly acclaimed and successful solo artists of all time. Across his five-decade career, he has achieved over 38 gold and 27 platinum or multi-platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and more than 300 million records sold worldwide. He holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time, 'Candle In The Wind 1997' as well as the record of 71 entries on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts. Elton has also written the music for stage and screen successes Billy Elliot: The Musical, Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA, and The Lion King, which was recently named the highest-grossing stage show or film release in the world.

After more than half a century on the road and an unparalleled career that has redefined the cultural landscape and seen Elton John claim his place as a true global icon, he announced via an exclusive VR180 live stream on YouTube, his final tour called Farewell Yellow Brick Road. Kicking off in the U.S. on September 8, 2018, the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will consist of more than 300 shows across five continents, hitting North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australasia before reaching its conclusion in 2021. These dates mark the superstar’s last-ever tour, the end of half a century on the road for one of pop culture’s most enduring performers. Elton’s new stage production will take his fans on a musical and highly visual journey spanning a 50-year career of hits like no one has ever seen before.
