Emotional Elton John Plays His Final North American Concert

Elton John’s final tour performance in North America took place at Dodger Stadium, where it all started, on Sunday Night. The 75-year-old closed out his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour paying tribute to the musicians he collaborated with throughout his career, saying they “inspired me to play better”.

Wearing a bedazzled jacket with tails and his iconic sunglasses, John said after playing ‘Philadelphia Freedom’ on a grand piano, “Tonight is a very special night, a very emotional night for me”

The final performance made history as “Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium” was live-streamed on Disney+.

The musical megastar told crowds at the Dodger Stadium on Sunday night in Los Angeles that "without America, I wouldn't be here" during a show that included incredible visuals, pyrotechnics and a surprise guest appearance from Dua Lipa.

John has been performing at multiple venues around the US and Canada as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

Elton said he was bringing his touring to a close to spend more time with his family, before also bringing them out to further cheers.

Beginning Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, he said "I wish you love and prosperity".

Now that his LA shows are concluded, John will head to Australia and New Zealand before starting the European tour dates.

The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will end with two special concerts at Vicarage Road, the home of Watford Football Club, the Football Club Elton became chairman of  in 1976, on July 3 and 4.
