Elton John's Farewell, Yellow Brick Road Tour has added two more shows after selling out eight New York-area shows. The tour will come back to New York City March 5 - 6, 2019, with another pair of shows at Madison Square Garden. American Express pre-sale is Thursday, April 12, at 10 a.m. through Monday, April 16, at 10 p.m. Ticketmaster verified pre-sale is Tuesday, April 17, at 10 a.m. to Wednesday, April 18, at 10 p.m. Public on sale is Friday, April 20, at 10 a.m.
In January Sir Elton announced he would retire from touring in 2021 at the conclusion of a 300-plus date world farewell tour. While John insists that he won't stop being creative and making new music, he says he's done with the rigorous travel and time away from his family. "I once thought I would be like Ray Charles and B.B. King and tour forever," John said. "But when I stop, [my children] are going to be 10 and 8, which is a very important age...I don't want to miss them."
John said he has plans to bring his family with him for at least part of the tour—the children will have a tutor so they don't fall behind on their education. But the goal is to be at home and have a somewhat normal family life as much as possible.
