The music legend will play at LFC’s home ground which has been described as his final tour.

The full tour takes in more than 300 shows across five continents and was set to run until the end of 2021.

However, the superstar is set to play one last date in Liverpool at Anfield Stadium.

The show will take place on Friday, June 17, 2022. This marks the superstar’s last-ever tour and the end of half a century on the road for one of pop culture’s most enduring performers.

Announcing the final dates of his tour on social media, Elton said: “Hello, all you wonderful fans out there. I’m coming to you today with an announcement I’ve been working towards for, well, all my life: the shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe.

‘I”m going to go out in the biggest possible way, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career.

“Whether it’s next summer in Frankfurt or at the legendary Dodger Stadium for the grand finale in the United States, I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time. This has been an incredible tour so far, full of the most amazing highs, and I look forward to making more wonderful memories with you at these final shows. To all my friends Down Under, we’ll be seeing you too. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you in your town.”
