Today Elton announced the rescheduled North American dates for his final tour. It kicks off on January 19, 2022, at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, with stops in cities like Houston, Texas; New York, New York; Detroit, Michigan; Chicago, Illinois; Toronto, Ontario; Fargo, North Dakota; Des Moines, Iowa; Lexington, Kentucky; Greensboro, North Carolina; and Miami, Florida.
The headliner said, ''I've been enjoying my time at home with the family while the world navigates its way through the COVID pandemic. But, I really miss being on the road and performing for my beloved fans in my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.
''While the scientists are making great progress, we are making big plans for a return to touring that will allow us to ensure the health and safety of everyone. I will be starting my tour again in Europe and the UK in the Fall of 2021. And I will be back in North America, starting in January 2022. This means my New Zealand dates will be postponed until 2023.
''Don't worry about me. I'm using my downtime to keep myself fighting fit and healthier than ever. I'm raring to go! As always, thank you so much for your loyal support. I look forward to seeing all you wonderful Elton John fans soon. In the meantime, please stay safe and be well. Thank you!''
