Elton John has resumed his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour after nearly a two-year delay.

The legendary pop singer was forced to halt his world tour in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Last night (January 19), he resumed his farewell shows in New Orleans, treating fans to the live debut of his Dua Lipa-featuring 2021 hit ‘Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)’.

John kicked off the show at the Smoothie King Center with ‘Bennie and the Jets’ and followed it with back-to-back classics including as ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Rocket Man’ and ‘I’m Still Standing’.

Footage of him performing ‘Cold Heart (PNAU REMIX)’ can also be watched here. The single, which is taken from his latest album, ‘The Lockdown Sessions’, hit Number One in the UK charts upon its release. It’s currently peaking at Number Seven on Billboard’s Hot 100.

Last November John said that he was “raring” to write new music, at the same time explaining that he would only be able to hit the road again once he had recovered fully from a hip injury.

The singer-songwriter had sustained the injury that summer, which caused him to postpone the remaining dates of the ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour that had already been rescheduled from the coronavirus pandemic.

He said in a TV interview with UK breakfast chat show host Lorraine Kelly that he will “make it up” his fans when he’ll “be in much better form”.

The tour, which he has vowed will be his last, wraps in 2023 after completing stops in North America, Europe and Australasia. See the full details here and all North American dates below.
