Elton John Rockets into Chase Center

Aug 21, 2019/CHASE CENTER

Sir Elton John is a five-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and composer who has rocked the music charts for over five decades. With more than fifty top 40 hits, including seven consecutive number-one albums in the United States and over 300 million records sold worldwide, he is one of the best-selling artists in the world.

The Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, which Sir Elton announced in 2018 would be his final tour, will bring a musical and highly visual journey celebrating the pop star’s career to Chase Center on Friday, September 13 and Sunday, September 15.

Andy Greene of Rolling Stone wrote of the show: “[it] is the most bombastic, elaborate, high-tech arena show he’s ever attempted. And even though much of the setlist is familiar fare, he’s paired many of the songs with new videos… that provide new perspective on the tunes.”

Greene also revealed the setlist from the night, which included not only many hits, but also select songs previously reserved for either shows in Las Vegas or smaller venues. Take a listen here.

The nearly three-hour-long performance of his hits has been so captivating that he was awarded the 2019 Billboard Music Award for Top Rock Tour. Don’t miss out — get your tickets for Elton John’s final visit to the Bay Area on Friday, September 13 and Sunday, September 15 now.
