Elton John Announces Rescheduled MN Concerts for 2022
Elton John is ready to get back on the road and has announced rescheduled dates for his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.
Yesterday, the "Rocket Man" singer announced rescheduled dates for the North American leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. He previously announced rescheduled dates of his European leg with a September 1, 2021 start in Berlin. He also announced rescheduled dates for his two New Zealand shows for January 2023.
The North American leg of the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour is set to kick off January 19, 2022 in New Orleans with other major market stops in Houston, Chicago, Toronto, New York, Miami and more planned along the way.
In a video update posted to social media Wednesday, the "Tiny Dancer" crooner shared this message with fans:
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. 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!
The two St. Paul stops of the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour originally planned for this past June have been rescheduled for March 22 and 23, 2022 at the Xcel Energy Center. The Fargo stop has also been rescheduled with a new date of March 19. Elton John kicked off his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour September 8, 2018 in Allentown, PA to a sold-out crowd. His tour has since earned itself rave reviews and accolades around the world including 2020 iHeartRadio Music Award for “Tour Of The Year,” 2020 Pollstar “Major Tour of the Year” and the 2019 Billboard Music Award for the “Top Rock Tour.”
