Elton John’s Farewell tour has been extended further into 2023, with new UK dates now added. Find out more about where and when he will be playing, and how you can get hospitality packages and VIP tickets.

Last Updated: 06/01/23 at 12 pm

It was first announced in January 2018 that Sir Elton John would be retiring from touring after one last worldwide tour that would last three years.

Here we are, over four years later, and the tour is going strong, and new dates have now been added to extend the end date into July 2023. It should be said that the tour was postponed for almost two years due to COVID-19 from March 2020 to January 2022.

The end of the tour will see the Rocket Man return to Europe for the third time during the tour, with two shows on 28th & 29th March 2023 at Dublin, Ireland’s 3Arena kicking it off. The final show will be in Stockholm, Sweden, on 8th July 2023.

In between those shows, Sir Elton will be returning to the UK, with shows planned in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Aberdeen and Glasgow.

A couple of new dates have been added to two of those cities now, and we're here to tell you about them. Here are the details on the new Elton John tour UK dates and how you can get VIP tickets.
