Sir Elton John is officially saying goodbye to life on the road.
The music icon announced at a press event on Wednesday that his next world tour will be his last after nearly a quarter of a century in the business. But he's not leaving without saying goodbye properly: the seventy-year-old said he would say farewell to fans with a series of 300 dates spanning three years.
The three-year tour will start in September, with a total of five stops in Canada.
Elton will have two concerts at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on the 25th and 26th of September 2018. On September 28th 2018, he'll perform at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa. He will be in Quebec at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City and the Bell Centre in Montreal on September 29th 2018 and October 4th 2018, respectively.
His last world tour will come after he finishes a six-year residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas that is due to end this May.
Over the course of his career, the singer has sold more than 300 million records and won numerous awards, including an Oscar for his song Can You Feel The Love Tonight from the film The Lion King in 1995, five Grammy Awards, and a Tony Award. Having been named an Order of the British Empire in 1996, he was made a Knight Bachelor by Elizabeth II for "services to music and charitable services" in 1998.
