ELTON JOHN AT ROD LAVER ARENA
Between December 2019 and February 2020, the legendary performer will deliver his famed songbook to spellbound audiences on his very last tour. He'll be playing a mammoth run, including Capital City concerts, along with stops at some of Australia’s finest outdoor venues.
Elton John’s three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road global tour has already been hailed as one of his most “energetic, dazzlingly-original and joyful celebrations”. Elton’s legendary catalogue, including beloved songs ‘Bennie and the Jets’, ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Crocodile Rock’, ‘Philadelphia Freedom’ and more, are showcased in a musical masterpiece that is a “reflective and stunning tribute to a great artist’s career” (NME), as well as celebrating his 50-plus year collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin - one of the great song-writing partnerships of all time.
“I’m ecstatic and humbled to continue to play for audiences across the globe. I plan to bring to my final tour the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades...It’s the most produced and fantastic show I’ve ever done. I want to go out with a bang...” – Elton John
