Adelaide Botanic Park
Throughout his five decade career Elton John could rarely be described as the retiring type. And yet, here he is announcing a plan to visit Australia and New Zealand as part of a three year, 300 show farewell tour. Beginning in September 2018, this lengthy victory lap will see him perform in five continents before wrapping up in 2021. It’s a very large full stop on a story that has seen chart-topping performer endear himself to generations of fans around the world.
After skipping Adelaide in 2017, John will visit South Australia at the start of the tour in December 2019, before spending much of Australia’s summer touring capital cities and regional centres. As far as retirement parties go it sounds frankly exhausting, but at least it will be sunny.
Elton will perform two Adelaide shows on December 4 and 5 at Botanic Park.
