Watch Elton John Reunite with Kiki Dee at Final North American Tour Date
Elton John returned to Dodger Stadium on Sunday for his final North American show, bringing on special guest stars Dua Lipa, Brandi Carlile and Kiki Dee to commemorate the occasion.
“This is a very special night for me — a very emotional night for me — and it’s been a long journey,” John told the audience.
“I first came here to America in 1970 to the City of Angels … and I played a club called the Troubadour … and it helped me by accelerating my career in America with a review I got from Robert Hilburn for the L.A. Times. So I’ll never forget that.”
The last bow of John’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour — which was available to stream live on Disney+– was attended by celebrities Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Jude Law, Billie Jean King, Taron Egerton, H.E.R, Joni Mitchell, Donatella Versace, Lizzo, Heidi Klum, Lisa Rinna, Lucy Hale, Sophia Bush, JoJo Siwa, Sara Gilbert, Christopher Lloyd, Jenna Dewan, Amanda Kloots and Angela Bassett.
The set list was packed with hits, including “Tiny Dancer” and “Bennie and the Jets,” “Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting),” “Rocket Man,” and “Your Song.” He also included his new hit, “Cold Heart” featuring guest Lipa, “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” featuring Carlile and, of “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” featuring Dee.
“In 1975, my next guest was here and sang with me, and we sang this song,” John said before introducing Dee.
