ELTON JOHN – FAREWELL YELLOW BRICK ROAD TOUR
Elton delivers on his promise, returning to Australia and New Zealand + adding five new ‘encore’ shows in Newcastle, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Christchurch | January 2023
Returning to Aotearoa in January 2023 to perform two rescheduled Auckland shows as part of his multi-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, Chugg Entertainment, Frontier Touring and AEG Presents are thrilled to announce that Elton John – the most successful performing male solo artist of all time – has added five special ‘encore’ performances to his epic run, with new shows announced today for Newcastle, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Christchurch.
With an unparalleled career that redefined the cultural landscape and saw over 300 million albums sold, Elton John is (after two years of COVID interruptions) back on stage. Elton embarked on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in September 2018 – its milestone, multi-year itinerary comprising over 300 shows across five continents. Hailed by fans and critics worldwide, the Farewell... performances have left audiences spellbound, a truly daring and intimate celebration of an incredible 50-year career. Currently on the road in North America, Elton will perform his final concert on US soil at Los Angeles’ iconic Dodger Stadium on November 20.
Newcastle is in for a truly special event when Elton takes to the stage for his very first show ever in the city, performing there on Tuesday 10 January at McDonald Jones Stadium. He’ll then perform at Melbourne’s AAMI Park on Friday 13 January – Elton’s 56th concert in VIC. Sydney fans can catch him at Allianz Stadium on Wednesday 18 January, his 86th concert in NSW and 75th in the city. Finally, Elton will make his AU curtain call at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium on Saturday 21 January – his debut show at the venue and 36th QLD concert overall.
