Greensboro, N.C. — Elton John's epic three-year farewell tour is now extending into 2022.
John was scheduled to play the Greensboro Coliseum in May this year, but that show has been postponed until April 19, 2022, due to coronavirus concerns. Tickets purchased for the original date will be honored for the rescheduled date.
The marathon, multi-continent tour of more than 300 stops began in 2018 and includes dates around, the world, with shows in London, Paris, Stockholm and Melbourne.
John will resume European dates starting Sept. 1, 2021. The North American shows will start on Jan. 19, 2022. The remaining tour dates, which will include a series of stadium shows around the world, will be announced at a later date.
“I’ve been enjoying my time at home with the family while the world navigates its way through the COVID pandemic. But, I really miss being on the road and performing for my beloved fans in my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour. While the scientists are making great progress, we are making big plans for a return to touring that will allow us to ensure the health and safety of everyone," John said via social media. "I will be starting my tour again in Europe and the UK in the Fall of 2021. And I will be back in North America starting in January 2022. This means my New Zealand dates will be postponed until 2023. Don’t worry about me. I’m using my downtime to keep myself fighting fit and healthier than ever. I’m raring to go! As always, thank you so much for your loyal support. I look forward to seeing all you wonderful Elton John fans soon. In the meantime, please stay safe and be well. Thank you!”
John played Raleigh's PNC Arena in March 2019.
