Elton John Heads Out On Farewell Tour in 2019

Elton John is one of those singers that has definitely reached legend status. It doesn’t matter the era you were born, or grew up in, chances are that you can sing at least one of his hits off by heart. The thing about Elton John is that his songs are timeless, and if this wasn’t enough, his story is pretty interesting too.

So much so, that this year we have been lucky enough to see the trailer for Rocket Man. A biopic all about the man behind the legend. Rocket Man stars Taron Egerton, playing Elton John, a choice perhaps influenced by the amazing performance of “I’m Still Standing” from Taron Egerton in the kid's movie Sing.

For fans of the colourful character that is Elton John, there is even more good news than the release of this movie. So, what could get better than that?

The Rocket Man blasts off one last time

Elton John has toured and performed all around the world, and for those who have been lucky enough to see him over the years, he is probably going to be up there as one of the best live performers out there. After all, he is dedicated to entertainment, as well as ensuring that every last person has a good time.

What about the people who haven't been lucky enough to see the real-life star in one of his concerts? Well, there is some even better news for you.

Elton John has decided that the time has come to say farewell to the days of touring and performing live, and what better way to do this than with a farewell tour?

Safe to say that Elton John never does things by halves, and this farewell is looking likely to go down in history. Known as the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, it started this month in the US, and will go on to last for 3 years, with Elton performing at 300 dates over this period of time.

For UK fans there is a wait, with the tour not reaching us until June 2019 and there will only be two dates based in the UK, Hove and Cardiff. Which of course means that tickets are likely to be hard to come by. Which is unfortunate when you consider just how popular that these shows are likely to be.

With tickets so hard to come by, some fans are going to have to resign themselves to the fact that the movie is going to be the ideal way to say goodbye to live music from Elton John. However, there is another option. Check out Seat Surfer and see what we have to offer.

A dedicated fan to fan ticket site, you may not only find the tickets that are going to blast you off into space, but also secure them at a price that is fair.
