Elton John Reflects on Final Dodgers Stadium Show, Livestream, on Good Morning America
Elton John joined Good Morning America today (Nov. 15) ahead of his last U.S. tour stop of the Farewell Yellow Brick tour show this weekend at Dodger Stadium.
“This is my last tour, you have to soak it in, and I have soaked in all the love, all the loyalty that’s been shown from the audience,” he told host Robin Roberts.
His final Dodgers Stadium performance will be livestreamed on Disney+ Nov. 20. The three-hour livestream will set the stage for his upcoming Disney Original Documentary, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road: The Final Elton John Performances and the Years That Made His Legend,” from filmmakers R.J. Cutler and David Furnish.
Sir Elton reflected on his first show at Dodgers Stadium and his famed sequined baseball outfit, which he won’t wear again because “I’m not the same size anymore.”
“It wasn’t the happiest time of my life, but I bounced back pretty quickly,” John said. “I was the biggest I could possibly be. But to be there again on my own, and to finish off the North American tour, with three days at Dodgers Stadium — I could not ask for a more wonderful ending.”
Brandi Carlile, Kiki Dee and Dua Lipa, who teamed up with John on the recent hit song, “Cold Heart (PNAU REMIX),” which hit no. 7 on Billboard’s Hot 100 list, will be a part of the show this weekend.
A lotta people don’t — embrace the new, and their songs, which are great, don’t shift over to the new. You have to and you know — and I love it, because as I say, the young make me feel special.”
He added, “I have a lot of energy, but when you’re 23, 24, you have a different kind of energy. And it shows in their music. When you work with those people, you learn a lot too. It’s a no-brainer.”
