Weekdays 9:00am - 2:00pm

The legendary musician known around the world as the great Elton John is geared up to play the final United States shows of his career on the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour this extended weekend in Los Angeles at the iconic Dodger Stadium.

The tour has actually been going on for a handful of years at this point dating all the way back to 2018. Funny enough, the tour originally kicked off in Allentown, PA on September 8th, 2018, and was followed up by two shows at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Different variations of the show have made their way back to the Philadelphia area a few times during this amazing tour, and I was fortunate enough to catch the current show earlier this summer when Sir Elton made his final Philadelphia stop at Citizens Bank Park on July 15th this year!

To say it was an outstanding performance would be an understatement!

He had the ballpark rockin’ all night long with just about every fan in the stadium singing each and every word right back to him!

Wow, just thinking about it has me excited!

But at the same time, it is such a bittersweet moment to look back on if this is really the end of the road for Elton John performances as this tour has been branded.

I’m not sure we will ever see an artist quite like Sir Elton again.

The final stop on the United States leg of the tour is not a coincidence, though.

It actually marks the first time Elton John will perform at Dodger Stadium since his two iconic performances back in 1975.

It is hard to believe that in all of his years on top of the music world, he has not made his way back there until now.

He will be celebrating his final shows at Dodger Stadium with a really sweet picture-disk vinyl record inspired by the songs he will be playing at the show!

He will also be doing a ton of other cool stuff for the show throughout the Los Angeles area including a scavenger hunt where fans can win a ton of prizes, as well as having numerous pop-up shops for fans to purchase merchandise.

The first show begins on Thursday and will be followed by two additional dates on Saturday and Sunday.

If you happen to stumble upon a ton of extra cash, maybe consider flying out to the west coast for a once in a lifetime show!

Or just read about it like the rest of us, and tune into WMGK all weekend to hear some classic Elton spun here and there!
