PHOENIX – The yellow brick road leads back to the Valley for Elton John. The music icon announced Wednesday one of the last shows of his farewell tour will be at Chase Field next year.

John will play at the downtown home of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Nov. 12, 2022. General public tickets to his Farewell Yellow Brick Road show will go on sale in Arizona at 10 a.m. June 30. Presales started Wednesday.

The voice behind such hits as “Tiny Dancer,” “Bennie and the Jets,” “Your Song” and “I’m Still Standing” last performed in the Valley in January 2019. That show at Glendale’s Gila River Arena was part of his ongoing tour and was thought to be the last time he’d play in metro Phoenix.

“Hello, all you wonderful fans out there. I’m coming to you today with an announcement I’ve been working towards for, well, all my life: the shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe. I’m going to go out in the biggest possible way, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career,” John said in a press release.

“I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time.”

It will be John’s 12th concert in the Valley. He first performed here Sept. 17, 1971, at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

“We are really looking forward to working with AEG to host this living legend in front of a sold-out stadium,” Derek Hall, president and CEO of the Diamondbacks, who are hosting the tour stop with entertainment group AEG.

We want to hear from you.
