Elton John Resumes His Farwell Concert Tour

Elton John says hello again with his resumed goodbye tour.

The “Rocket Man” rocker returned Wednesday with a concert in New Orleans, marking his first performance for the tour since a show in Australia in March 2020 due to the COVID -19 pandemic and his recovery from a hip injury.

“It’s good to be back!!” John, 74, wrote in an Instagram post after his gig at the Smoothie King Center.

John told the cheering crowd in New Orleans that he’d “never had this amount of time off” in his career. Here’s Elton addressing the audience! Courtesy: YouTube
