NOLA Show May Be the Last Time You Hear John Classic
Elton John's "Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour" had to be put on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic. His first date on the road after the tour resumes will be in New Orleans January 19, 2022, at the Smoothie King Center. It may be the last time you hear John perform a certain classic.
Elton Johns "Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour" kicked off in Allentown, Pennsylvania before getting derailed due to the pandemic. John vows the tour will resume and everyone will be protected. When it's all said and done, Elton will have performed more than 300 concerts worldwide.
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Elton John said he would like to play to small crowds after the farewell tour is done. Maybe set up a long residency at one location and play to small crowds every night for an extended engagement.
During that time he would like to move away from the hits and perform songs that weren't big chart monster hits, more album cuts that only true John fans would know.
There is one song that Elton would never want to play live again after his last tour, even though it was a big song for him. If you're seeing him in New Orleans one last time, you may hear him sing one of his biggest songs for one final time live. That song is "Crocodile Rock".
