ELTON JOHN at The 1st Central County Ground, Hove, on Sunday 9th June 2019 

Elton John has announced the first U.K. shows of his eagerly anticipated ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ Tour. He will be playing at The 1st Central County Ground, Hove on Sunday 9th June. 

Elton first played at the home of Sussex Cricket 12 years ago, and this will be his third visit to The 1st Central County Ground, a venue he enjoys playing very much. The ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour kicks off in Allentown, Pennsylvania tomorrow night having been announced at Gotham Hall, New York in January. The first 79 dates in North America sold out immediately, with this latest tour announcement following the news that Billboard have named Elton the No.1 top-performing solo male artist in the chart’s history.

“I want to thank my extraordinary fans for their overwhelming support throughout my career and especially their interest in being there to celebrate my final Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour,” said Elton John. “I am so excited for the start of the tour and can’t wait to see everybody on the road.”

Sussex Cricket Chief Executive Rob Andrew talks of Elton visiting the venue for the final time - “We’re honoured and incredibly excited that Elton has chosen The 1st Central County Ground to kick-off the final tour of an incredible career.

“The fact that such a musical legend has decided to join us for a third time and for such a momentous occasion shows not only what a brilliant reception he receives here in Sussex but also how highly regarded our ground is as a concert venue. We can’t wait to welcome Elton and all his fans next June.”
