Elton John has been on a farewell tour now for approximately the last 653 years (including a break to enjoy the pandemic, of course). If you wanted to see him perform one last time but didn’t manage to get tickets for any shows happening in your part of the world, well, worry not, because Disney+ has announced plans to livestream his last ever ever ever ever ever ever live show in the USA later this year.

On 20 Nov, John will conclude a three night run at LA’s Dodger Stadium, ending the US leg of the farewell tour, with dates then remaining in Australia, New Zealand and Europe – the UK shows happening in April. But don’t worry about any of those, because you’ll be able to watch that final American concert live from the comfort of your home via Disney+. So that’ll be nice for you.

John, as you might remember, announced plans to head out on one last world tour way back in 2018. Originally, the tour was set to conclude in late 2020, but ill-health and COVID-19 lockdowns messed up those plans. And so it is, nearly four years after he originally announced it, the farewell tour is still ongoing, currently scheduled to finally end next July.

As well as the livestreamed broadcast of the final US concert, there are also plans to film all three shows at Dodger Stadium, which will then be incorporated into a new documentary about the farewell tour. No release date has yet been announced for that, but it will also be available on Disney+, as well as receiving a limited release in cinemas.
