Great news for Elton John fans. The Rocketman singer has announced that he is adding new dates to his final tour, “Farewell Yellow Brick Road.” The tour, a play on his seventh studio album and song of the same name, was originally announced on a VR180 YouTube live special. This farewell, which is planned to span three years, three hundred tour dates and five continents, commenced on Sept. 8.
“It’s time to come off the road so I can fully embrace the next important chapter in my life,” he said on his official website. Having already performed throughout the United States, he is coming back for another go-around in the States, only this time, he’ll be solely performing in the New York/ New Jersey area. In fact, of the remaining twenty-one dates he has left in the United States, the final eight will be performed throughout the tri-state area.

Thirty-four in Australia, twenty-one in the United States, twenty in the United Kingdom, eight in Canada, Six in New Zealand, three in France, and one in Ireland.
