Elton John‘s having a hard time hanging it up for his final time on the road, so for now … he’s gonna keep the show going for just a little while longer.
The British music icon just announced that he’s extending his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, and it’s not even by just a tad — he’s adding 24 new stops in North America.
The concerts will be a mix of extended stays in cities where he was already set to perform — like extra days in Chicago, Houston, Montreal and Toronto. He’s also going to all new cities … such as Hershey, PA, Lincoln, NB, Fargo, ND and other smaller markets.
The new dates start in March of 2020 and will run through the summer — marking the last time he’ll play a concert either here or in Canada. His Farewell tour will then head across the pond where he’ll do a string of shows across Europe, and finally landing in the U.K.
Funny enough, Elton recently canceled and rescheduled a missed concert in Indianapolis due to illness — looks like he’s all better now, and making up for that tenfold.
Time will tell if EJ means what he says — about retirement — or if he’ll go the Cher route and never retire.
