Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger were among the many celebrities attending the concert, during which Elton told his adoring audience: “I became successful first in America, and you bought the singles and the albums and the 8-tracks and cassettes, the CDs, and more importantly you bought the tickets to the shows which I love more than anything, which is to play live. So, I want to thank you because you made me. Without America, I wouldn’t be here. So, thank you for all the years of love and generosity and loyalty.”

John is now continuing the European leg of the tour, with shows postponed, due to the pandemic, first from 2020 and again from 2021. Tonight (8) he plays the first of three nights at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Berlin, and the itinerary reaches the UK on May 30, when he and his band are at London’s O2 Arena. Shows in his home country conclude with his appearance at Glastonbury Festival on June 25.

“There is no more fitting way to say goodbye to my British fans,” he said when the Glastonbury news was announced. “I can’t wait to embrace the spirit of the greatest festival in the world.” Farewell Yellow Brick Road is scheduled to end in Stockholm on July 8.
