Elton John announces the first U.K. shows of his eagerly anticipated ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ Tour, performing at Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday 15th June, marking Elton’s last ever show in Wales.
The ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour kicks off in Allentown, Pennsylvania tomorrow night having been announced at Gotham Hall, New York in January.

“I want to thank my extraordinary fans for their overwhelming support throughout my career and especially their interest in being there to celebrate my final Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour,” said Elton John.“I am so excited for the start of the tour and can’t wait to see everybody on the road.”
He goes on to say – “I am very happy to announce the launch of my UK Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour with concerts in Hove and Cardiff. The audiences in the South Coast and Wales have always been some of the most welcoming and exciting I have played in front of over the past forty-two years and the band and I are so excited to say goodbye in the most fantastic way. It’s going to be amazing!”
The ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour will consist of more than 300 shows across five continents, hitting North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australasia before reaching its conclusion in 2021. These dates mark the superstar’s last-ever tour and the end of half a century on the road for one of pop culture’s most enduring performers. Elton’s new stage production will take his fans on a musical and highly visual journey spanning a 50-year career of hits like no one has ever seen before.
Cardiff City FC Executive Director & CEO, Ken Choo talks of hosting Elton’s 10th visit to the capital – “We’re delighted to be welcoming Sir Elton John to our Stadium next summer. I’m a great admirer of him as a performer and the charitable work he has done for a number of years around the globe.
