After much consideration, and in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, it has been decided that Elton John’s two January 2021 Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland performances will be rescheduled to Friday 27th and Saturday 28th January 2023.
In a global statement, Elton John today also announced newly rescheduled North American Farewell Yellow Brick Road dates, to begin in New Orleans on 19th January 2022, with stops in Houston, Chicago, Toronto, New York, Miami and more. These will follow recently rescheduled European dates, beginning in Berlin on 1st September 2021.
Elton’s performances will be rescheduled as follows:
- The Friday 15th January 2021 (previously Wednesday 19th February 2020) concert will now be held on Friday 27th January 2023; and
- The Saturday 16th January 2021 (previously Thursday 20th February 2020) concert will be held on Saturday 28th January 2023.
All customers will receive new tickets for the rescheduled concerts, in the same seating location, and further information relating to this will be sent directly from Ticketmaster. Please disregard your original tickets as they will no longer be valid.
If you are unable to attend the rescheduled shows on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th January 2023, please contact Ticketmaster to request a refund.
The rescheduled shows will no doubt deliver the same enthusiastic response from New Zealand fans, when Elton returns in 2023.
Elton John will deliver his famed songbook to spellbound audiences, on his very last tour, playing across a mammoth run.
Elton John’s three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road global tour has already been hailed as one of his most “energetic, dazzlingly-original and joyful celebrations”. Elton’s legendary catalogue, including beloved songs ‘Bennie and the Jets’, ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Crocodile Rock’, ‘Philadelphia Freedom’ and more, are showcased in a musical masterpiece that is a “reflective and stunning tribute to a great artist’s career” (NME), also celebrating his 50-plus year collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin - one of the great song-writing partnerships of all time.
