After years on the road, John revealed that his recently concluded Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour would be his final one. Both his health and the COVID-19 pandemic had caused delays to the tour.
"When we set off on my final tour in 2018, I couldn’t have foreseen in my wildest dreams the twists and turns and the highs and lows this tour - and the whole world - would have experienced in the next 5 years. And every step of the way, my fans have been there. You have stuck with me, you have supported me, you have been patient and you have kept turning out for every single last show," John shared to social media, of his final performance in July.
"Saturday night was magical. I’m trying to process it and I don’t think it will sink in for a while yet that I’m finally finished touring. I can’t tell you how much I’m going to miss you all and how much your support has humbled me - it will stay with me forever," he concluded.

With two sons, Zachary, 12, and Elijah, 10, whom he shares with husband David Furnish, John also has residences in London and the U.S.
Having been a dear friend to Princess Diana, John received a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II in 1998 in recognition of his musical and philanthropic efforts. In 2020, he was designated a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour by King Charles, who was "still a prince at the time."
