Music legend Sir Elton John has announced he is retiring with a huge global farewell tour – and he’s finally coming to Alberta.
Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will hit Edmonton on September 27, 2019, for two dates at Rogers Place.
Yes, two dates, but next year.
A man who needs no introduction, John is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 38 gold records and 31 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and he has sold more than 300 million records worldwide. He has also written the music for stage and screen successes Billy Elliot: The Musical, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida, and The Lion King, which was named the highest-grossing stage show or film release in the world.
The legendary artist has over 4,000 performances, in more than 80 countries, to his credit since launching his first tour in 1970.
And when he’s in town, look out for him at record shops… as he dropped by one last week in Toronto!
