Elton John’s manager is already saying he will play more concerts
The Rocket Man might be back.
While Elton John performed his final US show of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles last night – with Cold Heart collaborator Dua Lipa and Don’t Go Breaking My Heart partner Kiki Dee, who live streaming event – fans may be able to see the 75-year-old live again.
“It’s really important to differentiate if Elton is retiring from touring but Elton isn’t playing his very last public performance,” David Furnish – John’s husband and manager – told Billboard.
“Will Elton return as a live performer? I hope so,” he added. “It’s in his blood… When you’re an artist and something’s in your blood, you don’t want to shut the door completely.”
But make no mistake, the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Trek – which started back in 2018 but was postponed due to the pandemic – is John’s farewell to the tour.
“I know for a fact that he won’t be touring in any capacity,” Furnish said. “What you’re going to see is the possibility of a special one-off or a small residency in one place for a limited time.”
But while it might be good enough for Adele, don’t expect John to host a Vegas residency.
“I don’t think it’s going to be in Las Vegas,” Furnish said. “Elton feels like he did his best in Las Vegas. He completed two extremely successful residencies there.”
Nonetheless, Furnish, who has sons Zachary, 11, and Elijah, 9, with John, said his husband’s desire to devote himself to their family took him completely by the end of next July’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in Europe could keep off the stage.
“Nonetheless, I know Elton and it wouldn’t surprise me if he stopped doing live shows as well,” he said. “He’s really looking forward to spending time with his family. This is the #1 priority in his life. Any kind of return to any kind of [live shows] will be a very well considered situation and definitely not a matter of course.”
