Elton John Tickets

Farewell Tour Tickets Now on Sale

Tickets are on sale now for one last chance to see Elton John live in concert. Elton recently announced the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, which spans three continents and lasts more than three years. More than 150 shows were announced on January 24, 2018, with additional announcements highly anticipated. Despite the abundance of shows, tickets are expected to sell out fast as one music's greatest legends says farewell for good.

Demand for Elton John tickets was most recently exemplified during his Las Vegas residency which concluded in May 2018. Nearly two million fans flocked to Sin City to see Elton play more than 450 shows at Caesars Palace over the course of 15 years. And in the final two legs of the tour in 2018, all 27 shows were completely sold-out.

Every tour stop is expected to have a packed house and an undeniable atmosphere, but there are a few places that might have an extra-special feeling. After getting warmed up for a month, the tour will take on Madison Square Garden on October 18th and 19th and then three weeks later for another back-to-back. Another return trip in March concludes with a March 9th show at Barclays Center - his last show in New York.

[Updated November 2018] As expected, more Yellow Brick Road your tickets have been made available for new shows in Europe. The fifth leg of the tour winds through the UK and Ireland with a concluding show on December 16th at the O2 in London. Expect ticket prices for Elton's final show to reflect an other-wordly demand.

While announcing a final tour has become an annual ritual for some bands (we're looking at you, Ozzy), most insiders believe the 71-year-old Brit is embarking on a true farewell tour. This notion has sparked even greater demand for seats and has sent #EltonFarewllTour ticket prices surging.

Tickets and Seating

Elton John Floor Seats

All Elton John shows have a full seated floor. The stage will be at one end of the venue with the seats taking up the remainder of the floor. The middle section of the floor will have an extra row or two that extends into the curve of the stage. For the shows at T-Mobile Arena, Floor Section B is extended by a couple rows up close to the stage.

T-Mobile Arena Floor Seats
All sections on the floor for Elton John's tours are seated. Check your specific show for the layout.

Each venue labels floor sections differently, so be sure to look at the seating chart for your show to determine where your seats will be located in relation to the stage.

The best views from the floor will come from the front left sections when looking at the stage. Keep in mind that the floor does not have any elevation between rows. This means the further back you are, the more heads you will be competing with for good views. Luckily for this 2019 and 2020 Farewell Tour, the stage has a grand screen to help fans see any elements you might miss.

Check out the video above is from someone sitting around the middle of the floor in Omaha, Nebraska. They will pan out and show the crowd in front of them as well as the massive screen overhead.

Of course for the price of floor tickets to these Elton John concerts, fans want to see everything. For this reason, if you are choosing between floor seats toward the back or lower level side sections, we suggest choosing the side sections. The elevation between the rows makes a big difference in getting clearer views to the famous piano and band.

What to Expect

Details on the Concert Stage

Elton John's Farewell Yellowbrick Road Tour stage is one of the most elaborate he has ever had on tour. The videoscreen behind the band is outlined with "brick" symbols that span his entire career. Some of the most recognizable elements on the left side (when facing the stage) include the Lion King, Elton John AIDS Foundation, and Soul Train. Highlighted on the right side are musicals Aida and Billy Elliot along with a portrait of Ryan White who fought the stigma of AIDS with Elton John and several other celebrities.

Left side of the stage
The left side of the stage

Elton's piano is set up on the left side when looking at the stage and he plays almost the entirety of the set from there. This is to the delight of fans sitting near that side of the stage since they are close at all times. To the opposite effect, fans located on the right side might feel a little slighted after thinking they had seats up close to where Elton would be playing. Regardless, his stage is grand enough to appease the entire audience.

The rest of his band members are in a tiered layout within the stage. These extremely talented band members play several drumsets, keyboards, guitars, and other instruments which are all needed for the wide ranging Elton John setlist. Although the video screen is plenty big for fans to see, most shows will have two additional screens on either side of the stage for fans to enjoy. These video screens often highlight the other musicians for concert goers to appreciate.

Every element was thought out to make each night on the tour more than an Elton John concert, but an Elton John experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a limited/obstructed view?

The stage will be located on one side of the arena. Since the seats in most stadiums go all the way around, some will be located to the side or behind the stage. This will leave the video screen an band members out of view for some fans. It is important to note that all tickets sold will have sight of Elton John at all times during the concert. Tickets listed with side views will typically loose sight of the video board, while tickets listed as behind the stage will lose sight of both the video board as well as some band members.

Fans with tickets labeled as limited or obstructed views will have similar views to this photo.

Where does Elton play the most?

Elton John's piano will be located on the left side of the stage for nearly the entire concert. If you are between tickets on the left and right side, we strongly suggest picking seats that are on the left when facing the stage!

How long is the concert?

The concert will last a little over two and a half hours.

Can you see from the upper level?

Yes, there is a very large video screen located behind Elton John and his band members. This screen is easily visible to all seats not labeled as limited or obstructed viewing.

Upper Level View
The views from the upper level are still great due to the large video screen behind the stage.

Are there breaks during the show?

There are a couple of breaks that are a couple minutes in length but nothing that would equate to an intermission. Once the concert starts, expect the show to run until the end.

Is There an Opener?

Elton's Pre-Farewell Tours

Elton John has toured extensively throughout his career, playing thousands of shows in front of millions of fans. Although his music has been around for decades, Elton John's music is timeless and fans continue to sell out his tours. His most recent tour was in support of his thirtieth studio album which was spread out over two years and was called the "Wonderful Crazy Night Tour". This run of shows consisted of 145 dates and spanned the entire globe with 31 of those dates happening in smaller markets throughout the U.S.

The concert setup was minimal for an artist of his popularity, but for his fans it's the music that matters. With thirty studio albums, there was quite the repertoire to choose from for the setlist. Still, Elton kept fans happy playing all the major hits including Bennie and the Jets, Crocodile Rock, Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting, and Rocket Man.

Elton John June 2017

Following the conclusion of the "Wonderful Crazy Night Tour", Elton John spent some time in Las Vegas holding a residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The residency, called "The Million Dollar Piano" was easily one of the most popular shows on the strip during its time in early 2018. Night after night the Colosseum was filled with Elton John fans and Elton John hits that spanned his entire career. Reviewjournal.com estimated that Elton John played in front of 1.8 million fans at just his Las Vegas residencies alone.

As his touring winds down, millions of fans will keep the memories of seeing Elton John live with them to remember his historic career.
