Elton John Adds Second Date At MetLife Stadium

Elton John will say farewell to New Jersey–twice–with the addition of a second date at East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium July 24.

Sir Elton, who just turned 75, was originally slated to play just one show on July 23, but due to overwhelming demand, he has unveiled additional dates, including the second show in New Jersey.

“It’s hard to believe that after tomorrow in St. Louis, I’ll have just a handful of shows left before I wrap up my final arena performances in the United States,” Elton wrote on social media. “This year will see my grand finale in North America, playing stadiums all around the country, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.  I cherish these memories we’re making together. It has been nothing short of incredible and I look forward to seeing you very soon one last time, on my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.”

Elton John begins his final run of his “Farewell Yellow Brick Tour” dates in North America in Philadelphia, PA on July 15, finishing with the three-night engagement at Dodger Stadium November 17, 19 and 20.
