Elton John Live: Farewell from Dodger Stadium

Sir Elton John performs live at the Elton John's final North American show of his "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2022, at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. 

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Forty seven years after he took the stage at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles in a sequined-studded baseball uniform as the world's biggest pop star, Elton John walked on to the same stage on Sunday night wearing a bedazzled Dodgers bathrobe, a uniform more fitting for a 75-year-old man on the verge of retirement.

The crowd of more than 50,000 roared at the moment that came in the final minutes of the final North American concert of a tour John says will be his last.

“I want to spend time with my family because I’ll be 76 next year, he said. “I want to bring them out and show you why I’m retiring.”
