Elton John, one of the most prolific musicians and composers of the past 50 years, will perform in Atlanta for the last time this weekend.


 Music Minute: Elton John

John will perform Friday and Saturday at State Farm Arena as part of his final tour, titled “Farewell Yellow Brick Road.”

Earlier this year, John announced that this would be his last tour before retiring to spend time with his husband and two sons.

But Elton John is no stranger to the city of Atlanta. He became a resident of Buckhead in 1991.


In an interview with the AJC, he said he chose Atlanta because the people always welcomed him and made him feel right at home.

John's tour will run until December of 2020, where he will perform his final show at the O2 in London.
