Sir Elton John's final tour

It's farewell yellow brick road for Sir Elton John.

Sir Elton John, recently crowned by Billboard as the most successful performing male solo artist of all time, will embark on an epic Australian and New Zealand tour as part of his global Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

The tour will be the legendary music icon's most extensive to date and his last around the world. He will deliver his famed songbook to audiences and will visit Adelaide's Botanic Park on Wednesday 4th and Thursday the 5th of December 2019.

The 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 as well as celebrating his 50-plus year collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin - one of the great song-writing partnerships of all time.

Sir Elton John has been quoted saying "playing live to other human beings is the greatest gift any artist could ever have."

So what can audiences expect on this tour? A rare glimpse into Elton's life where they'll uncover the deeply personal meaning behind some of his greatest hits, via mesmerising, never-before-seen images and videos displayed throughout the show from his incredible 50-year career. Complete with brand new stage production, and tour wardrobe designed by Italian fashion house Gucci, Elton John's Farewell Yellow Brick Road global tour is intimate and personal, while also spectacular and daring.

He will be joined by longstanding band members Nigel Olsson on drums, esteemed musical director Davey Johnstone on guitar, virtuoso Ray Cooper on percussion, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.

Australia has also held a special place in Sir Elton John's heart since his first tour in 1971. In 2012 he opened the Perth Arena, and most recently delivering the final performance at the Sydney Entertainment Centre [since demolished], in December 2015.

He bids farewell to the road almost fifty years on from his debut Australian show, having played 196 concerts and performing to more than 1.5 million people across the country in that time. Since his career began in 1969, he has performed a staggering 4000-plus shows in more than 80 countries.

His final tour will be delivered with passion and creativity that has entertained his fans for decades, and is one of the most produced and fantastic shows he's ever done - he wants to go out with a bang.
