After nearly 50 years on the road, Elton John announced today that he is retiring from touring.
The 70 year old bespectacled pianist made the announcement in a press conference with Anderson Cooper. The event was streamed live on Elton’s Facebook & YouTube accounts and can be viewed below.
Wanting to make sure he makes a proper goodbye and hits everywhere he can, the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour will run for 3 years and hit about 300 cities, including Target Center in Minneapolis on February 21, 2019.
Tickets go on-sale Friday, February 16 and more info on ticket pricing can be found here
