Elton John wasn’t kidding when he indicated that his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour would extend over three years. The celebration, which began September 8, 2018, now has dates through 2020. On Feb. 2, John added dates in Australia and New Zealand for 2019 and 2020 to his sold-out tour. (On Feb. 12, he added another nine “Down Under” shows.) The new performances are part of what he promises will be an extended goodbye, encompassing 300 dates.

On Nov. 14, 2018, U.K. high-end department store chain, John Lewis and Partners, released an extended clip of their Christmas season advertisement. The video features Elton John performing “Your Song,” at various stages of his career (with occasional stand-ins).

Watch the remarkable clip

The performer originally announced the tour on January 24, 2018, via a live streamed press conference. Read our recap of opening night here.

The concerts typically feature 24 songs of the performer’s classic rock hits including such favorites as “Your Song,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” “Tiny Dancer” and “Burn Down the Mission.” One highlight has been a rollicking version of “Levon.”

Watch him perform “Levon” on September 16, 2018

At the original press conference, John said the tour will encompass as much as three years and 300 dates. He said he expects to perform on “every continent” before he calls it quits.
