Elton John Sells Out First 60 ‘Farewell’ Shows, Including Buffalo Stop

Music News

The first 60 shows of Elton John’s upcoming three-year “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour” have sold out — and additional U.S. dates will be announced later this week. Elton posted in a press release: “I want to thank my extraordinary fans for their overwhelming support throughout my career and especially their interest in being there to celebrate my final ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.’ We are working closely with (promoters) AEG to make sure more cities and additional concerts in sold out markets are added in North America wherever and whenever possible. I am so excited for the start of the tour and can’t wait to see everybody on the road.”

Promoter Jay Marciano, the Chairman and CEO or AEG Presents added: “The love and appreciation Elton’s fans have shown to him throughout his legendary career continues to be at an unprecedented level. Always one to put his devoted fans first, we are thrilled with Elton’s decision to add additional North American tour stops to accommodate the extraordinary demand and will be sharing additional dates in the coming days.”

Elton John was asked why his farewell to the road needs to be such a long and major outing: “My fans have always turned up to my concerts. It means a lot to me. I’ve been touring since 1970 — that’s 48 years, and I’ve always managed to sell out concerts. So, it’s a way of saying thank you, and it’s a way of going out with a bang. I don’t wanna go out with a whimper — I wanna go out with a big bang.”
