Elton John 11/15/22

Elton John‘s final North American show at L.A.’s Dodger Stadium will exclusively be livestreamed on Sunday, November 20th, at 11 PM ET / 8 PM PT on Disney+. The special will also feature special performances by Grammy-winning artists Dua LipaKiki Dee, and Brandi Carlile. The concert will begin with the Countdown To Elton Live, program — “featuring special fan messages, interviews with Elton  and husband David Furnish and more excitement from Dodger Stadium!”

At the start of the tour, we caught up with Davey Johnstone, Elton’s guitarist for over 50 years. And although he maintains the “Rocket Man” is indeed quitting the road — he’s still unsure if he’s actually done with performing. We asked him if he really thinks Elton’s farewell trek is really the end of the road: [“Oh yeah. Oh yeah — we’re too bloody old! It’s not gonna happen anymore. When we finally get finished with this farewell tour, there’s no way we’re gonna do any more. There’s no way. . .  it’s just that . . . ‘Cause, y’know, I just turned 70, Elton’s 74. He’s ready for a break — but again, I never say ‘never’ with him. All I know is this is a farewell to touring. This is what this ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ thing is. So, who knows what might happen? He might do something else, revue-wise, or maybe a one-man show somewhere. I have no idea.”] SOUNDCUE (:28 OC: . . . have no idea)

Elton John will next perform on November 17th, 19th, & 20th at L.A.’s Dodger Stadium.
