The Elton John farewell tour has been rescheduled to arrive in Chicago twice in 2022 after the COVID-19 pandemic caused concert dates to be pushed back.
Singer-songwriter Elton John will be at the United Center Feb. 4 and 5, 2022 at 8 p.m. for the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, as well as at Soldier Field on Aug. 5 at 8 p.m., the artist announced.
"The shows I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe. 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," John said in a video posted to social media Wednesday.
