“The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family and less time touring,” said Elton. “I am all too aware of how precious the time ahead is. My sons are growing up so quickly. Their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them”.

Elton John will be joined by Nigel Olsson on the drums, Davey Johnstone on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards and Matt Bissonette on bass.

The legendary career of the performers spans five decades and is heavily decorated with numerous milestones including but not limited to 38 gold records, 31 platinum albums, and selling more than 250 million records worldwide.

Since his first tour in 1970, John has performed over 4,000 concerts across the globe.
