The global "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour will cover "every continent you can possibly think of" over the course of three years, according to the singer, who performed "Tiny Dancer" and "I'm Still Standing" live from New York City on the broadcast.

The show, which will consist of 300 shows in five continents over the span of three years, will close a chapter on almost 50 years of performances all over the world. It will be his global farewell tour but it will take several years to complete and will include 300 shows. If we were 10, 15 years younger, we probably would have, definitely.

After all, John was one of four acts that played Save Mart Center on its opening week in 2003. Eltonjohn.com will be fully back online as soon as possible. A limited number of exclusive VIP Packages will also be available for sale starting at 10 a.m. Thursday.

John said he will perform 300 dates ("I have to say, Madison Square Garden is my favorite place to play in the whole world - it's just magic, that place.") and that it will be the "best production I've ever done". American Express card members and Ticketmaster verified fans can purchased tickets earlier. Ticketmaster will have its verified pre-sale 10 a.m. January 30-31.

Elton John's Farewell Yellow Brick Road world tour starts in the USA on September 8 with Australian dates due to be announced later this year. John said he was exhausted of traveling and wanted to spend more time with his sons, 5-year-old Elijah and 7-year-old Zachary, as well as his husband, David Furnish.

"I'm not going to be touring anymore", he told Anderson Cooper at New York's Gotham Hall.

Sir Elton will arrive in Europe in April 2019. His tour announcement arrived in a live VR broadcast.

A video posted on Elton's Twitter page has also teased that he will be "embarking on the next phase of his creative journey". He has won five Grammys, an Oscar, a Golden Globe for "The Lion King" and a Tony Award for "Aida". Only a few days ago, he received the Crystal Award at the World Economic Forum in Davos for his longstanding fight against HIV/AIDS.

Fans can expect the music legend in Perth between December 2019 and February 2020 on what will be the last and most extensive Aussie visit of his glittering career.
