Elton John - Farewell Yellow Brick Road - Zusatzshow am 1. May 2019 @ Wiener Stadthalle - Halle D.
  • Elton John

“It’s time to come off the road so I can fully embrace the next important chapter of my life.”

Elton John geht auf Abschiedstournee: Die “Farewell Yellow Brick Road”-Tour wird am 2. Mai 2019 in der Wiener Stadthalle Stopp machen.

Mit seiner schier unvergleichlichen Karriere und mehr als einem halben Jahrhundert auf Tour hat ELTON JOHN die kulturelle Landschaft nachhaltig geprägt und sich den Status als wahrhaftige und weltweite Ikone erarbeitet. Jetzt hat der Superstar in einem exklusiven VR180 Livestream auf Youtube seine allerletzte Tour angekündigt: Los geht’s am 8. September 2018 in den USA, über 300 Konzerte insgesamt wird Elton John in Nordamerika, Europa, Südamerika und Australasien spielen bevor 2021 dann der letzte Bühnenvorhang fällt.

Diese Konzerte werden die letzte Tour des Superstars sein, sie markieren das Ende von mehr als einem halben Jahrhundert “on the road” für einen der beständigsten Künstler der Pop-Kultur. Seine neue Bühnenproduktion nimmt Fans dabei mit auf eine musikalische und sehr stark visuell gestaltete Reise durch die 50-jährige, mit unzähligen Hits gespickte Karriere.

“Performing live fuels me and I’m ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe,” sagt Elton. “I plan to bring the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades to my final tour. After the tour finishes, I’m very much looking forward to closing off that chapter of my life by saying farewell to life on the road. I need to dedicate more time to raising my children.”

This release celebrated 50 years of his songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin. He has also written the music for stage and screen successes Billy Elliot: The Musical, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida, and The Lion King, which was named the highest-grossing stage show or film release in the world.
