Elton John has revealed the first french dates for his long-awaited Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. During the french tour, Elton John will pass through venues he frequented during his extraordinary career, but he will also visit some of them for the first time, on June 18 at the Pierre Mauroy stadium in Lille, on June 20 at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, June 22 at the Arkéa Arena in Bordeaux and June 23, 2019 at the arenas of Nîmes.
The first 76 dates immediately sold out, suggesting that this farewell tour will be among the most popular, if not the most important, musical events of the next three years.
"I want to thank my great fans for their continued support throughout my career, and especially their concern to be there to celebrate my last tour: Farewell Yellow Brick Road," said Elton John. “I can't wait for the tour to start to see everyone on the road. "
The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour started in the United States last month. It will include more than 300 shows across five continents, passing through North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australia before ending in 2021. These dates mark the very last superstar tour and the end of half a century on the road for one of the most enduring artists of Pop. Elton's new production will take his fans on a very visual musical adventure spanning 50 years of an incomparable career teeming with hits.
Elton John will visit five continents and play more than 300 shows around the world during the three years of the FAREWELL YELLOW BRICK ROAD tour.
