Elton John has sold more than 300 million records, making him one of the best-selling artists of all-time. His “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” last brought him to the Valley for a 2019 concert at Gila River Arena in Glendale.
“The shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe,” Elton stated in a news release. “I’m going to go out in the biggest possible way, 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 United States, I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time.”
This will mark Elton’s 12th concert in the Valley, with the first performance taking place on Sept. 17, 1971 at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
The tour will kick off May 27, 2022 in Frankfurt. The “Final Tour” will make stops in Europe in major cities such as Milan, Liverpool, and Paris. He will then travel across the pond to take his final bow in North America, playing in major cities including Vancouver, Toronto, East Rutherford, Chicago and more.
The North American stadium run will kick off at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on July 15, 2022 before concluding with back-to-back performances at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Nov. 19 and 20, 2022 --- commemorating his iconic performance at the historic venue in October 1975.
The Phoenix stop will showcase Sir Elton’s first-ever Chase Field appearance.
“Chase Field continues to establish itself as a premier venue for major acts and it does not get any bigger than Sir Elton John’s farewell tour,” D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall stated in a news release. “We are really looking forward to working with AEG to host this living legend in front of a sold-out stadium.”
