Elton has expressed his gratitude to his devotees as he looked back on his “most successful” year on Christmas Day.

Last month, the 72-year-old wished fans a Merry Christmas and thanked them for making 2019 ”probably the most successful year” of his career.

He has been ”blown away” by the box office success of both his farewell tour and biopic Rocketman. He also acknowledged the success of Me, his autobiography.

In addition, Elton recalled receiving the Legion D’Honneur — “the highest honour you can get artistically in France” — from French president Emmanuel Macron, and being named “the number-one male artist of all time” by Billboard.

Elton also says after his Christmas break, he’ll head to the Golden Globes on January 5, where Rocketman is up for three trophies.  “Keep your fingers very tightly crossed and hope that we can come away with at least one award,” he adds.

“And then I come back…to work and onwards and upwards with the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour!” he concludes. “I hope I come to a place near you in 2020 where we can continue the fun and games. Love you all so much.”

Elton’s tour resumes on the 7th of January in Sydney, Australia. He’ll be back in North America in March.
