An Elton John biopic, Rocketman, is on the way, chronicling the life of the iconic singer/songwriter from his days as a young boy in England, through his illustrious career, and to the height of his fame in the 1970s. Welsh actor Taron Egerton portrays Sir Elton John in the upcoming film, which is slated for release in theaters worldwide on May 17th, 2019. The film also stars Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Earlier this year, the prolific musician announced that he will retire from touring with an extensive 300-date tour dubbed “Farewell Yellow Brick Road.” The massive global farewell tour will likely span through to 2021, John reported on Anderson Cooper. At 70 years old, John explained his reasoning behind his farewell, noting, “My priorities have changed in my life. … My priorities now are my children, my husband, my family. I thought the time is right to say thank you to my fans and say goodbye.”

Though the tour is likely to continue for years, John noted that once the tour is over, he’ll be done for good. As John explained, “I’m not going to say I’m retiring and then do a world tour. I’m not Cher.”

The “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour began on September 8th in Allentown, PA, with Elton John recently adding 25 new 2019 dates to the already-extensive tour. Tickets for the newly added venues will go on sale beginning on October 5th at 10 a.m. local time. An American Express Card Member pre-sale period will take place from Thursday, October 4th, at 10 a.m. through Monday at 10 p.m.
