After Paris Olympia in 2016 and Bercy in 2017, Sir Elton John is back in France and specifically in Paris for three last concerts scheduled on Sunday June 25, Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28, 2023 at the Accor Arena. A piece of advice to all fans of the artist: do not miss this show since it is the British singer’s farewell tour entitled “Farewell Yellow Brick Road”!
Please note these three shows at the Accor Arena were initially scheduled on October 10, 12 and 13, 2021. But because of a hip issue, the artist unfortunately has to postpone his three Paris shows to 2023.
The artists wished to apologize in a release issued this September 16:
"At the end of my summer break I fell awkwardly on a hard surface and have been in considerable pain and discomfort in my hip ever since. Despite intensive physio and specialist treatment, the pain has continued to get worse and is leading to increasing difficulties moving. I have been advised to have an operation as soon as possible to get me back to full fitness and make sure there are no long-term complications. I will be undertaking a program of intensive physiotherapy that will ensure a full recovery and a return to full mobility without pain.
I am going to complete the charitable Globel Citizen event on 25th September as I don't want to let a charity down. Being just five songs it's a very different physical undertaking to the demands of playing for close to three hours every night on tour and traveling overnight between countries. After this I will be having the operation to ensure the tour can get back on the road in January of 2022 in New Orleans.
I know how patient my incredible fans have been since Covid halted touring last year, and it breaks my heart to keep you waiting any longer. I completely feel your frustrations after the year we've had. I promise you this - the shows will return to the road next year and I will make sure they are more than worth the wait
Furthermore, tickets for shows on October 10 2020 & 2021 will only be available for the show on Sunday June 25, 2023. Tickets for shows scheduled on October 11 2020 and October 12, 2021 will only be avalailable for the show on Tuesday June 27, 2023. Last but not least, tickets for shows scheduled on October 13, 2020 & 2021 will only be available for the show on Wednesday June 28, 2023.
Please note tickets purchased for the original concerts will stay valid for the new dates. Customers will have to make sure they come for the right date as stated. If they wish to get their tickets repaid, may they ask where they bought them.
Furthermore, a few weeks ago, Elton John has decided to add new dates to this farewell tour scheduled in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Northern America. Save the date! The British artist's very last show in France will take place on Saturday June 11 and Sunday 12, 2022 at Paris La Défense Arena.
"Hello, all you wonderful fans out there. I’m coming to you to day with an announcement I’ve been working towards for, well, all my life: the shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe. I’m going to go out in the biggest possible way, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career. Whether it’s next summer in Frankfurt or at the legendary Dodger Stadium for the grand finale in the United States, I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time. This has been an incredible tour so far, full of the most amazing highs, and I look forward to making more wonderful memories with you at these final shows. To all my friends down under, we’ll be seeing you too. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you in your town." Elton John explained on social networks.
We easily imagine there will be loads of fans! For the record, Elton John has released many hit tracks (“Your Song”, “I’m Still Standing”, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”) and sold-out world tours.
He also played and sang for the greatest artists such as John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Céline Dion, George Michael, The Rolling Stones, the Who, Queen, Sting and so on…
This final tour will be the occasion to (re)discover live the artist’s many tracks.
