Elton John has announced dates for the UK leg of his much hyped three year farewell tour. You know, the one he’s doing before he stops with all that sort of thing.

The tour kicked off in September and will take in five continents before reaching its conclusion in what will then be a less futuristic sounding 2021. By then, 2020 will also be old hat, but right now it seems like ages away. Which is going to be disappointing if you’re here in the British Isles and looking forward to seeing John play, because that’s when you will have to wait until. Right at the end of 2020 too.

It’ll be worth the wait though, says John: “The ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour will take us to many places that have meant a lot to me over the last 50 years, but these UK shows will be incredibly special. The UK is home and where my heart will always be. To celebrate some of the incredible moments we’ve shared with my British fans over the years will be wonderful. These homecoming shows will be very emotional, and a lot of fun”.
