Elton John will perform for the second consecutive night at Paris La Défense Arena in June 2022, as part of his farewell "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" world tour.

The British pop superstar, interpreter of "Your Song" and "Candle in the Wind", will be on Saturday 11 June 2022 as well as Sunday 12 June in the Parisian stadium, the first scheduled date being already full, for his last two concerts in France, his production company said in a press release on Thursday.

The 74-year-old singer will begin a tour of more than 30 dates in Europe and North America in May 2022 in Frankfurt (Germany) which will end six months later in Los Angeles (United States).

Previously, Sir Elton John will play at Bercy - renamed Accor Arena - on October 10, 12 and 13, 2021 in three equally sold-out concerts.
