Elton John Bringing Farewell Tour To Bryce Jordan Center

Elton John will bring his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour to the Bryce Jordan Center on Sunday, September 16, the BJC announced Wednesday via Twitter. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, February 2.

“I’m not going to be touring anymore, apart from this global tour which launches in September,” John told CNN’s Anderson Cooper at a press conference in New York today announcing the tour. He said his priorities have changed and he hopes to focus more on his family.

Elton John is a legend known for hits like “Rocket Man,” “Tiny Dancer,” and “Bennie and the Jets.” The tour will make more than 300 stops before its close in 2021 and will present John’s 50-year career of hits “like no one has ever seen it before.”

“Performing live fuels me and I’m ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe,” he said in a press release. “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.”
