Elton John's ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour will be chronicled in an upcoming documentary.
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road: The Final Elton John Performances and the Years That Made His Legend will focus on the tour, and it will take a look back at the rock ‘n roll legend’s breakout years between 1970 to 1975, the years he released 10 albums and most of his iconic hits..
The documentary will also include previously unseen footage from the past five decades, along with Elton’s handwritten journals and current footage with his family.
The film is being directed by R.J. Cutler along with Elton's husband, manager and filmmaker David Furnish. Furnish said, "Elton and I could not think of a better collaborator than R.J. Cutler for a film that represents more than just Elton’s career — it’s his life. From the Troubadour to Dodger Stadium, we knew that R.J. would help guide Elton’s story and its many layers in a way that feels authentic and evocative. We’re ecstatic to be working together.”
There’s no mention yet of a release date for the documentary. It’s expected to hit the festival circuit then a theatrical release, followed by streaming on Disney +.
