Sir Elton John fans, the Rocket Man thanks you.

Stopping his show in Norwich on Wednesday, the 75-year-old music legend paid a sweet tribute to all of his followers who have supported him over the years.

He told the crowd at the Carrow Road football stadium: "Tonight is the 229th show on the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, we have about 103 shows to do. It’s been quite a journey and it all ends next July.

"But I want to thank you because I won’t be playing here again. I want to thank you for all the memories, all the love you’ve sent me, all the loyalty, the kindness, the letters, the dressing up, the costumes, the multiple shows you’ve been to."

 

He added: "It means the world to me and I will never forget you guys.

"I will take you with me in my heart, in my soul and I can tell my boys all about you when I get old and decrepit. I love you."

John has decided to retire from touring in mid-2023, so he can spend more time with his husband David Furnish and their two boys.
