Elton John Confirms St. Paul Dates- Absolutely Worth Going to See
Elton John. Everyone knows who this is, everyone knows his music, and he's doing a farewell tour. It's been going on for a few years now, and by the time that it's over, it will have been going on for about 5 years. But, with that off year of 2020 due to the pandemic. That is why the original dates at the Xcel were cancelled. We did know that they had been tentatively rescheduled for March of 2022, but now those dates have been confirmed.
I had the opportunity to see Elton John as part of this farewell tour in Las Vegas in 2019, before COVID hit. This show is amazing. And here's the thing- there isn't a ton of production and pizazz in this show. There is a time of his piano seemingly on fire- it's cool, I'm not going to lie. But he basically sits at his piano, plays and sings. The piano itself moves across the stage, though and that's cool. But the thing about this show is more of what Elton says and talks about. He's in his 70s, has had an amazing career and is an absolute icon. He plays all the music you know and is familiar, but he chats inbetween and tells stories about what was going on in his life, gives some reference to the movie based on his life- Rocketman. And does say that even though it's not in chronological order, it is how it happened. I believe he is referring to the songs and how they were inspired by his life and what was happening.
This video was released talking about restarting his Farewell Tour, which he says will absolutely be a farewell tour. No coming back after this, although he will still work here and there, just no tours.
The dates at the Xcel are March 22 and 23. Two nights- because he needs two nights. The catalog of songs this man has is unbelievable. Tickets are on sale now, and this show is something that is for sure a must-see.
Elton John also Tweeted out a statement:
If the dates at the Xcel don't work for you, he will also be at the Fargodome on March 19th for one night.
