'Rocket Man' Elton John performs final show of farewell tour
Elton John has stopped performing after five decades of making people happy all over the world. The famous 76-year-old musician gave his last tour show in Stockholm on Saturday night. It was a bittersweet way to say goodbye. The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which started in 2018 and was supposed to end in 2021, ended at the Tele2 Arena. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, his last trip had to be put off, and it has now been going on for five years.
When we set off on my final tour in 2018, I couldn't have foreseen in my wildest dreams the twists and turns and the highs and lows this tour - and the whole world - would have experienced in the next five years . And every step of the way, my fans have been there. They have stuck with me, they have supported me, they have been patient, and they have kept turning out for every single last show.- Elton John
Tonight has been magical. I'm trying to process it, and I don't think it will sink in for a while yet that I've finally finished touring. I can't tell you how much I'm going to miss the fans and how much their support has humbled me - it will stay with me forever.- Elton John
After more than 300 shows, the famous musician finished the concert with "Your Song" and, fittingly, "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." He told the crowd ahead of the final songs:
I've had the most wonderful career, beyond belief. Fifty-two years of pure joy, playing music. How lucky am I to play music? But I wouldn't be sitting here and talking to you if it wasn't for you. You bought the singles, the CDs, the albums, the cassettes. But more importantly, you bought the tickets to the shows. And you know how much I love to play live. It's been my lifeblood to play for you guys. You've been absolutely magnificent. Thank you.- Elton John
John wrote on Instagram before the show, "What a journey this tour has been and now we find ourselves at the end of it," Some of John's best-known songs, like "Tiny Dancer," "Rocket Man," and "Candle in the Wind," were played at the show. In pink sunglasses in the shape of a heart, he thanked his fans for their support over the years.
You have no idea what it means to me, your kindness. I've had the most wonderful career. How lucky am I to play music. But I wouldn't be sitting here and talking to you if it wasn't for you.- Elton John
The international farewell tour started in 2018, but because of the pandemic, it had to stop in 2020 for almost two years. The 76-year-old gave his last show in the UK at the Glastonbury Festival last month.
Elton John's career took off in the early 1970s with the release of his critically acclaimed and commercially successful albums, such as "Elton John" (1970), "Tumbleweed Connection" (1970), and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" (1973). His music blends various genres, including pop, rock, glam rock, and ballads.
Known for his flamboyant stage presence and extravagant costumes, Elton John became an iconic figure in the music industry. He is also recognized for his remarkable piano skills and powerful voice. Throughout his career, he has released numerous hit songs, including "Your Song," "Rocket Man," "Tiny Dancer," "Candle in the Wind," "Crocodile Rock," and many more.
Elton John's contributions to music have earned him several accolades and awards, including five Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Tony Award. He has sold over 300 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists.
