What can we expect on the tour?
Elton announced the tour at an event in New York’s Gotham Hall, saying: "My life has changed, my priorities have changed and my priority now is my family."
He is also expected to arrive in Asia in November 2019, Australasia in December 2019 and early 2020, South America in March 2020, and Europe/UK at the end of 2020.
Speaking to The Guardian, Elton said that his children and family were a key factor in his decision: "We had taken them around everywhere when they were little, because they were very portable.
"But then they weren’t so portable and we had to have a big discussion about what I wanted to do with my life, the children and my career. And I said I’d like to end with a big tour and spend the rest of my life with my children."
Elton is expected to play a long list of his greatest ever hits, from 'Your Song' to 'Candle in the Wind' to 'Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting'.
