Elton John has announced yet another UK date for his epic Farewell Yellow Brick Road World tour.

The legendary performer will take his final tour back to Manchester for a third and final date on December 12, 2020 at the Manchester Arena.

Tickets for the new tour dates will go on general sale on Friday, February 28 at 10am from Ticketmaster.

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."

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 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'.
