Sir Elton John
“It’s time to come off the road so I can fully embrace the next important chapter of my life.”
And, with that statement, the true “Rocket Man” kicked off the final concert tour, “Farewell Yellow Brick Road.” Born Reginald Kenneth Dwight March 25 th , 1947 in Pinner, United Kingdom, Sir Elton Hercules John taught himself how to play piano at the age of 4. In 1967, he answered an ad for a songwriter for Liberty Records. He got the job… and later teamed up with Bernie Taupin- a musical relationship that continues to this day!
Starting with “Your Song”, Sir Elton John’s success has spanned decades as a solo artist, collaborator, very successful “Face to Face” tour with Billy Joel, Broadway and much more! He’s won Grammys, Tony Awards and an Oscar… and now it’s time to enjoy his children with longtime life partner David Furnish. But- his music will continue!
