What made the concert so important to Elton John was that it would be his last in the state.

John’s latest tour, “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” was supposed to take place in 2020 but covid had him postpone it.

His performance last night marked his 29th in the state.

During the show, he gave a final farewell speech in which he talked about his travels all over the state and named some local arenas.

Elton John performed once here in the Wildwoods back in 1971. That concert took place at the old Wildwoods convention center. Tickets back then only cost $5.50. This is nothing compared to today’s prices that could see tickets cost over $400.

For those at the concert, it was such a surprise to hear someone so big in the music industry to recall our towns when they haven’t been to them in over 50 years.

His final show in the states will take place November 17 at Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA. According to his message after this tour he wants to retire to spend time with his family.
