Elton announced: “Hello, all you wonderful fans out there. I’m coming to you today with an announcement that I’ve been working towards for, well, all my life: the shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe.

"I’m going to go out in the biggest way possible, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career.

"Whether it’s next summer in Frankfurt or at the legendary Dodger Stadium for the grand finale in the US, I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time.

"This has been an incredible tour so far, full of the most amazing highs, and I look forward to making more wonderful memories with you at these final shows. To all my friends down under, We’ll be seeing you too. Thank you, and I’ll look forward to seeing you in your town."

Elton will play a long list of his greatest ever hits, from 'Your Song' to 'Candle in the Wind' to 'Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting'.

The tour has already had rave reviews from fans and critics, and Sir Elton will carry on where he left off before the coronavirus pandemic, in 2021.

Back in January 2018, Elton John revealed that he will retire from live performance after an epic tour titled the 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' tour.

Elton previously 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."
