Elton John is getting ready to return to Dallas. His “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour” will bring the classics on January 25 and 26, 2022, for back-to-back nights at the American Airlines Center.
This will be the third stop on Elton John’s tour during the North American leg beginning in January and will be his final tour.
In January of 2018, Elton John announced that the three-year-long “Farewell” tour would be his last, marking his retirement from touring. Tickets went on sale on February 24, 2018, and the first sixty shows were sold out within hours.
The tour’s name, “Farewell Yellow Brick Road,” is a reference to Elton John’s 1973 album, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” where he sings, “When are you going to come down, when are you going to land?” ultimately alluding to his retirement.
An announcement in November of 2018 included a Winter 2020 tour that was said to have sixteen concerts across Ireland, Scotland, and England. It was later postponed to 2021 due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
Recently, in September of this year, the European leg of the tour was postponed once again until 2023. This was due to a hip injury that Elton John had sustained.
After fully healing, Elton John will be back for the North American leg starting next early year.
Although the Dallas concerts take place on January 25 and 26,2022, he will be returning to Texas in September of 2022 for an Arlington show at Globe Life Field.
Elton John will return with musicians he has previously worked with, including Davey Johnstone on guitar, Ray Cooper on percussion, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.
The setlist includes Elton John’s most treasured and classic records, including “Bennie and the Jets,” “Tiny Dancer,” “Rocket Man,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Your Song,” and many more. So far, the tour has grossed around $358 million over 179 shows.
