Just last night Elton John kicked off possibly the world's longest farewell tour with a show in Allentown, Penn.

It was a career spanning 24-song show that dug up some gems that we haven't heard in a long time. 

"This is quite a night for us – and for me, especially – because this has been two-and-a-half years in the making," John explained early in the night.

Elton opened with the fan favourite, 'Benny and the Jets' and things only got better from there.

"I’ve had the most wonderful time, making records, touring, playing with the band," John said as the show was nearing its end. "It’s been an incredible journey, and one that I’ve enjoyed so much."


Here's the full setlist from the show last night, and it's most likely the one that's he's going to bring over here.
