The tour is due to hit the year after his stadium shows in 2020, visiting London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow and more, with his performance at Cardiff City Stadium confirmed to be his last ever Welsh show.

The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will take us to many places that have meant a lot to me over the last fifty years,” Elton said, “but these UK shows will be incredibly special. The UK is home, and where my heart will always be. To celebrate some of the incredible moments we’ve shared with my British fans over the years will be wonderful. These homecoming shows will be very emotional, and a lot of fun.

He has nearly 40 gold records, over 50 Top 40 hits and has sold over 300 million records worldwide. The singer has also earned himself a spot among the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well as the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
