Elton John thanks his fans for ’52 years of pure joy’ as he concludes his touring career

After more than 50 years on the road, Elton John has officially retired from touring.

The legendary artist performed his final concert at Stockholm’s Tele2 Arena on Saturday, marking the end of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.

“I’ve had the most incredible career, beyond words. How fortunate am I to be able to play music for 52 years?” John, 76, told the audience as he concluded his concert with “Your Song” and “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.”

“But, you know, if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you. You bought the singles, albums, CDs, and cassettes, but more importantly, you bought the concert tickets, and you know how much I enjoy performing live.”

After the show, the five-time Grammy winner thanked his fans for their unwavering support over the decades.

“My fans have been there for me every step of the way. They’ve stayed with me, supported me, been patient, and attended every single event,” he said in a post-show statement, according to Consequence.

“Tonight has been a beautiful night. I’m still processing everything, and it will take a while before I fully accept that I’m done touring. I can’t express how much I’m going to miss the fans or how their love has humbled me – it will live on in my heart forever.”

During the event, the “Tiny Dancer” singer received a special message from Chris Martin, who was performing with Coldplay in Sweden at the same time.
