Sir Elton John to Retire from Touring

Elton John

Elton John is saying farewell, and he'll say it in Omaha next year.

"Performing live fuels me and I'm ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe", he said. "I'm not going to be touring and travelling the world". "I thought the time is right to say thank you to all my fans and say goodbye". He wrote on Instagram that "EltonJohn.com will be fully back online as soon as possible". American Express cardholders have access to a pre-sale that starts February 8.

John will have two stops in MI during his tour. 1, 2018, in Atlanta at Philips Arena; Dec. 6, 2018, in New Orleans at Smoothie King Center; March 12, 2019, in Raleigh, N.C., at PNC Arena; March 13, 2019, in Columbia, S.C., at Colonial Life Arena; and March 15, 2019, in Jacksonville, Fla., at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.

Full dates for the rest of the tour will be available soon.

Elton John delivered big news to his fans on Wednesday, January 24. Pre-sale will begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday and run through 10 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 31.

Mixing ballads like "Candle in the Wind", "Your Song" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" with pounding rockers "Crocodile Rock" and "Bennie and the Jets" proved to be a winning formula: he has sold more than 300 million records.

The 70-year-old British entertainer, revealing his plans at a gala NY event, said he planned to "go out with a bang" with a global tour that will open on September 8 and last through 2021. John said he will visit "every continent in the world".

"Elton is embarking on the next phase of his creative journey".

Sir Elton will arrive in Europe in April 2019.

These include mixed reality learning applications, a special Chemistry Update for Minecraft and a new coding app called MakeCode. The Lenovo 300e is a 2-in-1 convertible PC with pen support and it will be available starting at $279 United States dollars .

John made the announcement via a live, tech-infused event in New York, LA and London, with exclusive VR180 live stream supported by YouTube.

"It will take three years probably".

Elton has named his final tour the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.

Elton's career achievements to date are unsurpassed in their breadth and longevity. Elton is taking his show on the road one more time.

Asked if he may reconsider the decision, he vowed not to do a "Cher", in reference to the American singer who announced at least two farewell tours and two Las Vegas residencies. This release celebrated 50 years of his songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin.

At the time, Sir Elton said he felt "grateful to be alive", revealing that he could have died at any time while struggling through his European tour unaware he was suffering from the condition. He's won five Grammy Awards, a Tony and an Academy Award. Only a few days ago, he received the Crystal Award for this long-standing fight against HIV/AIDS at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

John, who first publicly described himself as bisexual in 1976, in the 1980s became one of the most visible gay celebrities, helping bring more mainstream attention to the struggle for LGBT equality.

"It'll be a global tour".
