He will travel to the Stadium of Light in Sunderland on June 19 and Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol on June 22.

His final UK date will be at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium on June 29.

He will kick off the dates in Frankfurt on May 27 2022 and conclude with back-to-back performances at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on November 19 and 20 2022, commemorating his famous performance at the venue in October 1975.

In January 2023 he will travel to New Zealand for two shows, followed by dates in Australia, where the four-year tour will formally come to an end.

Sir Elton, 74, said: “The shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe.

“I’m going to go out in the biggest possible way, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career.

“Whether it’s next summer in Frankfurt or at the legendary Dodger Stadium for the grand finale in the United States, I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time.

“This has been an incredible tour so far, full of the most amazing highs, and I look forward to making more wonderful memories with you at these final shows.

“To all my friends down under, we’ll be seeing you too. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you in your town.”

The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour began in September 2018 and is set to be the Rocket Man singer’s final stint on the road.

He said he wants to spend more time with husband David Furnish and their two sons, Zachary and Elijah.

He was forced to postpone a string of dates last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
