Elton John’s final tour will stop in Louisville

Elton John has announced he will retire from the road following a three-year, 300-date tour, which will stop at Louisville’s KFC Yum Center on Tuesday, Oct. 23.

He said during a news conference that his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour” will be his last because he wants to spend more time with his family.

“I’m not going to be touring anymore,” John, 71, said at New York City’s Gotham Hall. “I’m not going to be touring and traveling the world. My priorities have changed. I have young children.”

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 2, with prices starting at $49.50.
