Elton John bids farewell to live audiences, farewell also at Glastonbury Festival

Sir Elton John is now ready to say goodbye to touring altogether. The British pop star is busy with the last concerts of his 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour', which will end on 8 July in Stockholm.

Elton John also said goodbye to the legendary Glastonbury Festival (in the south west of England), where he performed on Sunday 25 June. The musician has made it known for some time now that after the farewell tour he will at most indulge in occasional live performances.

After 32 studio albums, record sales of 300 million, at the age of 76, the time has come for Elton John to start saying goodbye to the live stage.

The salute to the British people
The Glastonbury Festival may therefore have been Sir Elton John's last show in the UK, his last chance to greet his home audience live. From the musician's words, however, it was inferred that other occasions, in the future, might not be missed. Certainly not as grand as the Glastonbury Festival, but live performances could still be planned. Who knows...
