Legendary pop star adds show in Ireland to his gargantuan tour
Elton John has added an Irish date to his final Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in 2022. Tickets for the date go on general sale at 9am on Thursday 22 July.
The extra gig concludes one of the longest goodbyes in pop history, ending almost five years after its first date in Allentown, Pennsylvania in September 2018.
Racking up over 300 performances across the globe, Elton has framed the tour as his retirement from the world of live music, stating, '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.'
Elton has had one of the most enduring careers in pop with 69 singles charting in the UK top 40, including 'I'm Still Standing', 'Rocket Man', 'Candle in the Wind' and 'Tiny Dancer.'
