Tickets For The Elton John "Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour" Averaging Over $500 On Secondary Market

After more than 30 albums and five decades on the road, Elton John’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour” marks the touring end of a remarkable music career. And ticket prices on the secondary market reflect just how popular this singer who has all but transcended time really is.

Elton-John-Tour-Ticket-PricesAccording to TicketIQ.com, the average asking price for John’s final tour, which so far is a two-leg affair spanning North America and Europe, are the highest they’ve been for the last decade – and not just by a little. The current asking price on the secondary market for a seat to a show on the “Farwell Yellow Brick Road Tour,” is $517, which is more than double the price of any of John’s tours dating back to 2011.

To put that into perspective, John has toured eight times since 2011, and the next most expensive average ticket price behind the upcoming tour was last year’s “Wonderful Crazy Night Tour,” which checked in at $248. The next three most expensive were 2011’s “Greatest Hits Live Tour” ($238), 2014’s “Follow the Yellow Brick Road Tour” ($232) and 2016’s “The Final Curtain Tour” ($228).Currently, Elton John is in residence at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. His Las Vegas stint, called “The Million Dollar Piano,” will end on May 19.

John’s first leg of the final tour begins Sept. 8 in Allentown, Penn., and will run through June 30, 2019. It features four dates in Canada and more than 55 across the U.S. That leg ends in Sunrise, Fla. on March 16, 2019. After an almost two-month break, John will finish the tour in Europe, with multiple dates in Germany, Ireland and Switzerland and single dates in seven other countries. John with then head to Australia in December 2019, South American in March 2020, and has plans to finish off the tour with legs in the UK and Europe in late 2020 and then one final North American leg in 2021.
