British rock legend Elton John has officially rescheduled tour dates for his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which initially began back in 2018. John had originally postponed the North American leg of the tour due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. The rescheduled tour will kick off on January 19 of 2022, and those who have already purchased tickets will have their tickets honored for the rescheduled tour.
In July, John was honored with his own official UK coin, and earlier this year he performed on the iHeart Living Room Concert for America, as well as One World: Together at Home benefit livestreams. John’s continued commitment to provide entertainment to his fans after five decades of touring and recording music is truly a testament to his love of performing and of music.
John isn’t the only legend of the classic rock era who continues to share his music with his fans; bands like The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Chicago, Journey, the Steve Miller Band, Billy Joel and a handful of other artists and bands have been playing live shows well into their fourth decade of music. Their unwavering commitment to bringing joy to their fans is truly remarkable, and should not be taken for granted by any music fan, especially as we reminisce about our favorite concerts during a year that is devoid of live music.
I have just completed my senior year at the University of Michigan majoring in international studies with an emphasis in political economics and development, with a minor in Chinese language and culture, and I have recently been accepted into the Berklee School of Music’s masters of music business program. Although economics, politics and history are all academic interests of mine, I consider music to be my true passion.
Music has always been my passion, and it is a driving force for the way I think, act, and conduct myself on a daily basis. I have been playing the clarinet and saxophone since the age of ten, and the ability to play music at a high level has allowed me to embrace music on a multitude of levels. I am both an avid player and listener of music, and I find myself constantly in search of new artists who bring something new and different to the art form, and writing about new music has become a new outlet for me to explore what is going on in the musical world.
