Seventy-five-year-old pop music legend Elton John played his last-ever North American tour date in Los Angeles with three consecutive shows at Dodger Stadium this month.

“I started off in Los Angeles at the Troubadour (club), and I want it to end here because it’s been a magical place for me,” John said in an interview.

The final concert was broadcast live on Disney+ and included performances with Dua Lipa, Kiki Dee, and Brandi Carlile – three “very important singers in my life,” he explained.

John’s long illustrious career is now in its sixth decade and includes hits like “Tiny Dancer,” “Rocket Man,” and “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” He has six Grammy Awards, has been inducted into both the Rock and Roll and Songwriters Halls of Fame and has sold over 300 million albums worldwide.

The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour began in 2018 with 300 dates scheduled across the globe, but a long pandemic-related interruption has meant that John won’t play his final show in Sweden until July 2023. But that doesn’t mean he’s headed for retirement. “I’ll be recording with other people, and I’ll be hopefully writing an album for myself. So it’s not as if I’m stopping doing anything,” he explained. “But I’m not traveling. Traveling takes me away from my family.”
