Elton John Concert History

Sir Elton John began playing piano at a young age and when he was just 15 years old was hired to perform as a pianist at the Northwood Hills Hotel pub. In 1962, he formed his first band, Bluesology, and in 1967 began a song-writing partnership with Bernie Taupin that continues to this day. John's debut solo album "Empty Sky" was released in 1969 with his "Elton John 1970 World Tour" kicking off the next year. During the early 1970s, John released some of his most influential, critically acclaimed, and commercially successful work including the singles "Your Song," "Rocket Man," "Candle in the Wind," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Tiny Dancer," and "Bennie and the Jets." In 1992 he was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame followed by an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. On September 8, 2018, John began his intended final tour, the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.
