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 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.”READ MORE: Cal State University Will Require Faculty, Staff, Students On Campuses To Be Vaccinated Against COVID-19
In October of 1975, John played two sold out shows at Dodger Stadium. He was the first musician to have performed at Dodger Stadium since the Beatles in 1966. Just prior to those shows, he also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
It is with great excitement that I announce the final dates for my award-winning Farewell Yellow Brick Road: The Final Tour in North America and Europe.
