The long-running joke about farewell tours is they usually take some liberties with the word “farewell.” Kiss played their first farewell tour way back in 2000, for instance, and they’re currently in the middle of another one. But even by the squishy standards of farewell tours, this news is pretty head-turning: Days after taking what was billed as his final bow in Milwaukee, Elton John has announced that he’ll be back for another show here.
The legendary singer-songwriter played a nearly three-hour sold-out show at Fiserv Forum on Saturday, and now the venue has announced he’ll return for an encore on April 28 as his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour continues.
Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Nov. 1 at eltonjohn.com. Prices have not yet been announced.
Here’s a description of the show from the press release:
Taking the audience on a magical journey through his career, the show features some of Elton’s most beloved songs from his legendary catalogue including, “Bennie and the Jets,” “Rocket Man,” “Tiny Dancer,” and “Philadelphia Freedom.” Elton’s music has taken him to many places, opened many doors and inspired many passions in his life. The audience will experience a rare glimpse into Elton’s life and the deeply personal meaning behind some of his greatest hits, with mesmerizing, never-before-seen photos and videos shown throughout the show from his incredible 50-year career.
But, of course, fans who saw the concert on Saturday already knew that.
