Legendary singer Elton John has officially released the final dates for his Farewell Yellow Brick Road The Final Tour in North America. The pop icon has added eleven new locations to his tour, including additional stops across both the United States and Canada.

As per Variety, John will kick off the 2022 North American tour on July 15 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and will finish off on Nov. 20 in Los Angeles, California. The beloved English star — who just celebrated his 75th birthday — shared the good news across his social media accounts, delivering an emotional farewell to playing in the United States after all these years.

It’s hard to believe that after tomorrow in St. Louis, I’ll have just a handful of shows left before I wrap up my final arena performances in the United States. This year will see my grand finale in North America, playing stadiums all around the country, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.  I cherish these memories we’re making together. It has been nothing short of incredible and I look forward to seeing you very soon one last time, on my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.
