Elton John bids farewell to America from Dodger Stadium: What to know, where to watch his final show

3 mins read

LOS ANGELES —  The sun is setting on Elton John’s final North American show in the place where it all began – Dodger Stadium.

John, 75, will close out his Goodbye Yellow Brick Road tour, his final American concert tour. The “Rocket Man” singer’s third night at Dodger Stadium will be even more poignant since the venue serves as the famous setting for John’s 1975 breakout stadium concerts. 

More than 47 years ago, John’s two electrifying, sequin outfit-filled concerts at the historic baseball stadium affirmed the rising star’s supernova status (as seen in his 2019 biopic “Rocketman.”) 

“Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium” will be live streamed on Disney+ beginning at 11 ET/8 PT.

Sunday’s Disney+ live stream will feature special guest performances from Dua Lipa, Brandi Carlile and Kiki Dee, John’s duet partner for one his biggest hits, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.”

Elton John performs onstage during the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour at Dodger Stadium on November 17.

A cadre of stars will walk the red carpet for John’s farewell concert including Lizzo, Heidi Klum, Angela Bassett, Courtney B. Vance, Idina Menzel, John Stamos, Connie Britton and “Top Gun: Maverick” star Miles Teller.

Britney Spears, who recently collaborated with John on their joint single “Hold Me Closer,” is not scheduled to attend – much less perform.
