UPDATE: Marilyn Russell is giving away tickets every day next week, from Monday the 29th through Friday, February 2nd, at 7:00 a.m. for one of Elton John’s Philadelphia shows!
Ok, Elton John fan. I see you. And the cat is out of the bag. The rumors are true. It’s happening.
Elton John is retiring.
But before he does, he’s going on a MASSIVE, 300-stop, multi-continent farewell tour, aptly titled, “Farewell Yellow Brick Road”. And we, my friend, are getting two chances to see him here in Philadelphia!
You can see a video of the announcement launch below, and here’s what else you need to know:
It’s September 11th and 12th, 2018, at the Wells Fargo Center. Tickets will be on sale Friday, February 2nd at 10 a.m. Ticketmaster and American Express cardholders have access to a presale prior to the general on-sale date. The event is at 8:00 p.m., and you can bet it’s going to be a pretty full set.
300 shows across five continents is a heck of a way to say farewell, but would you expect anything less from Elton John? He is a cultural icon, globally recognized, and has imprinted his legacy across pop culture for decades. I think we all owe it to him to say “farewell” back, and September 11th and 12th are our opportunities to do so.
