He's spent decades topping the charts, and influencing music as we know it today, and now he's announced the time has come to move one. Elton John's farewell tour "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" will be his last world tour.
He says it will be massive though, "his biggest yet." But don't worry because the tour will include a stop in Minneapolis. The massive three-year tour will include 300 dates, including a stop at Target Center.
We have to be patient though as we have more than a year till he gets here, with his show set to take place on Feb. 21, 2019. Tickets will cost $59.50 to $249.50 and will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Feb. 16th.
The last time he was in the Twin Cities was five years ago, playing the Xcel in 2013.
In an interview, he gave some insight into his decision, while he says he will continue to write music his priorities however have changed. "I've been touring since I was 17 with various bands," John said. "I thought the time is right to say thank you to all my fans and say goodbye." Elton said his priorities changed when he and his husband, David Furnish, had children."We had children and had changed our lives and in 2015 we sat down with their school schedule and we said I'm going to miss too much of this."
Although this leaves the music industry and his fans shook, we couldn't be happier for him. He deserves the retirement and a new chapter.
