Elton John Announces New U.S. Tour Dates

20th September 2019 | Category: Concerts

British Grammy winner Elton John, started Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in September 2018, stating it will be his last one. He felt like it was the right time to stop performing after almost 50 years on and off the road:

“It’s time to come off the road so I can fully embrace the next important chapter of my life.”

His intention was to focus more on family life with his husband, David Furnish and their two sons:

“After the tour finishes, I’m very much looking forward to closing off that chapter of my life by saying farewell to life on the road. I need to dedicate more time to raising my children.”

The first 60 shows of Elton John’s farewell tour sold out almost immediately. The North American leg and his first three weeks in Europe made him the top-grossing artist of the year. The end of the first leg of the tour on 18 March 2019, had grossed over $125 million and he also received a Billboard Music Award in the category Top Rock Tour.

Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will last three years and consist of more than 300 shows that his fans will be able to see across five continents. The tour will end in 2021, after reaching North America, Europe and the Middle East, Asia, South America and Australasia.

Currently, John is in the midst of the tour’s second North American leg and four more shows have been added to the tour. In addition to performing at the previously announced tour stops, he will also be bringing his retirement tour to New York and New Jersey.

6th September 2019 | Category: Concerts

The JB Happiness Begins tour began on 7th August 2019 and the famous brothers have already shovelled in almost $20 million in only 12 shows.

The gross so far has surpassed the monetary outcomes of all of the band’s previous tours.

After six years, the brothers made up and kicked off in style.

Happiness Begins is their first tour after all of them got married. Sharing the title with their latest, fifth studio album the tour has racked up about $20m in just a few weeks since its beginning.

American Airlines Arena in Miami had the honour of hosting the initial concert. Needless to say, it was a sellout with 164,638 tickets sold, according to an official announcement.

Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena was the venue of choice for the two-night set on 23rd – 24th August 2019. The double concerts collected $2.8 million in just 48 hours. The follow-up was Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, which grossed $1.9 million on 18th August 2019.

There’s a long road to take, knowing that the tour concludes in February next year, in Paris. However, the average gross per show ($1.6 million) is a great start to the next world record in top-grossing tours in the band’s history. In 2009, the world tour scored a $1.1 million mark.

Fans can expect the American part of the tour to last until the end of 2019, when the Jo Bros will hop to Europe.
