Elton John has announced that he will be partnering with Twickets for his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.
Twickets is a global fan-to-fan ticket marketplace which aims to provide a regulated space for fans of Elton John to ethically buy or sell their spare tickets. The aim of the partnership is to combat the secondary ticketing market, prevent the exploitation of Elton John fans and to eliminate price mark-up by ensuring that tickets are resold at face value.
The iconic singer-songwriter’s sold out and much-anticipated Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour begins in North America in Allentown, PA on 8 September and will make 300 stops around the world before concluding in 2021. Fans that were unable to secure tickets before are now able to purchase tickets directly through the official Elton John and Twickets partnership website, with dates in Los Angeles and Toronto currently available.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Elton John announced the news of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in January 2018. The superstar singer-songwriter said that he made the decision in the south of France in 2015, in order to be able to spend more time with his husband, David Furnish, and their children. “My priorities have changed in my life,” he commented. “Ten years ago, if you’d have said I was going to stop touring, I’d have said ‘No, no, I’m a working musician, I’ve always played.
“But we had children, and that changed our lives,” he continued. “In 2015, David and I sat down with a school schedule and thought ‘I don’t want to miss too much of this. I’ve had an amazing life, I’ve had an amazing career, I’ve been so incredibly lucky, and the priorities in my life have changed.
“I’ve been touring since I was 17, in various bands and as Elton John [from] 1969, and I thought the time was right to say thank you to all my fans around the world, and to say goodbye, and have a breather. It doesn’t mean to say I’m still not going to be creative, but I’m not going to travel anymore.”
