Elton John has done 200+ on his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour, and the rock ‘n roll icon is down to his final American shows at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles this weekend.
Sir Elton talked about how his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour is going. He said, "it's been the most amazing, amazing reception and it's like a love fest between me and the audience. We've changed a couple of things around for this leg of the tour. I'm enjoying playing and singing more on this tour than I've ever done. And I think the band are playing better. I'm singing better and I'm playing better. So, when you're in that kind of frame and you're on that kind of roll, the shows just take care of themselves."
Elton also talked about why he’s wrapping up the American leg of his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour at Dodger Stadium. He said, "That was a seminal point in my career and it was the kind of peak of my career and it was just so enjoyable. And I came to America first in 1970 in August and I played the Troubadour club and that kind of launched me with Robert Hilburn's review in the Los Angeles Times. It prodded me forward much quicker than it would normally would have done. And so I started in Los Angeles and I want to finish here. And Dodger Stadium is by far the only venue to play outside in this city that's worth it's salt because it has so much history, I love baseball, it's a beautiful stadium, there's palm trees and I didn't want to play anywhere else."
The next show is Saturday followed by the finale on Sunday, which will be streamed live on Disney+ at 10pm (Central). It will begin with Countdown to Elton Live, with special fan messages, interviews with Elton and more.
