Elton John announces rescheduled 2022 tour with 4 Canadian dates

Legendary musician Elton John has rescheduled his world tour, previously cancelled due to COVID-19.

John, 73, and his team announced the dates for the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, which will take place in North America in 2022. There are two dates in Toronto and two dates in Montreal — and that’s it for Canada for now. The tour kicks off again in North America on Jan. 19, 2022, in New Orleans.

Additional information on the concerts will be announced at a later date.

John announced the news to his fans on Facebook.

“I’ve been enjoying my time at home with the family while the world navigates its way through the COVID pandemic,” said John.

“But I really miss being on the road and performing for my beloved fans in my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour. While the scientists are making great progress, we are making big plans for a return to touring that will allow us to ensure the health and safety of everyone.

“I will be starting my tour again in Europe and the U.K. in the fall of 2021, and I will be back in North America starting in January 2022. This means my New Zealand dates will be postponed until 2023. Don’t worry about me. I’m using my downtime to keep myself fighting fit and healthier than ever. I’m raring to go!

“As always, thank you so much for your loyal support. I look forward to seeing all you wonderful Elton John fans soon. In the meantime, please stay safe and be well,” he concluded.

Any current ticketholder will have their tickets honoured at the rescheduled performances.
