Dua Lipa Helps Elton John End His Farewell Tour: Look + Listen

As the crescendo to his dramatic big North American send-off in Los Angeles, on Sunday night (11.20) Sir Elton John was joined on stage by Dua Lipa.

It was only fitting that Dodger Stadium was chosen to end John’s grand “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” North American tour stint as the venue marked a pair of sold-out shows at the peak of his popularity in 1975.

Delivering a magnificent 24-song, career-spanning set, for his swan song performance John took the stage in a sparkling Dodger robe that recalled the glittering baseball uniform he wore in 1975. And to kick off his encore, John welcomed Dua Lipa to stage for their “Cold Heart,” collaboration which incorporates elements of four John songs, “Rocket Man,” “Sacrifice,” “Kiss the Bride,” and “Where’s the Shoorah?”

In addition to Dua Lipa, Elton brought out singer Kiki Dee to perform their 1976 duet, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and Brandi Carlile also took the stage for a rendition of “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me.” 

With the North American leg of his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour now complete, the iconic musician will perform his final shows in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and the U.K in 2023 with the grand finalé in Stockholm, Sweden come July.
