Is Elton John playing any other Irish dates?

Yes! However, the Cork gig is set to be his final ever tour appearance in Ireland.

Elton will play at the 3Arena in Dublin later this year on December 3 and 4 with another gig in Belfast at the SSE Arena on December 6.

What can fans expect?

For Elton fans, the gig will be a final chance to see the iconic singer live.

All the hits can be expected, including Bennie and the Jets, Rocket Man and Tiny Dancer.

The tour promises to take the audiences “on a magical journey through his incredible 50-year career with never-before-seen-photos and videos, all set to the tune of some of Elton’s most beloved songs”.

What have the reviews been like?

Overall, the show has been a hit for both crowds and critics.

Rolling Stone said of Elton’s first show of the tour (back in 2018) that it is the “most bombastic, elaborate, high-tech arena show he’s ever attempted”.

The review of the opening night claimed that if Elton keeps the energy and joy of the first show, “it’s going to be one hell of a way to say goodbye”.
