Elton John extends his tour and adds more dates in Canada

It seems beloved music icon Elton John isn't quite as done with touring as he once indicated, because the star just added new show dates for Toronto and Montreal as well as 20 other performances across North America.

John announced he'd be officially retiring from live touring following his three year Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

The tour began back in September of 2018 and it's been dazzling and impressing fans ever since. It's set to wrap up at some point in 2021.

Many have expressed disappointment that they'll never have the opportunity to see the Rocket Man perform live ever again. 

Lucky for them, John will be returning to Toronto for two shows on March 28 and 29 before heading to Montreal for performances on April 2 and 3. 

Toronto and Montreal are the only Canadian cities with added dates, but a total of 24 performances were added to the North American leg of the tour.

Tickets for the new performances will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Fri, November 22.

They'll likely be in high demand considering he's had no trouble selling out major arenas in the past, so you'll have to move fast if you're hoping to get your hands on some of the very last Elton John tickets.
