Music legend Sir Elton John will be rocking the Vic again this weekend as he brings his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour to the home of Watford FC – and it’s not too late to be part of the crowd.
The former Watford FC chairman and lifelong Hornets fan will be performing at Vicarage Road Sunday and Monday and several hundred additional tickets have now been made available for each night.
These cost £90, £120 and £150 and can be purchased from Ticketmaster via this link.
This will be Sir Elton’s fourth time at the club with whom he will always be synonymous, having convinced a young manager named Graham Taylor to move from Lincoln City to Vicarage Road in 1977.
Together they set out to create what is still regarded as the golden era in the club’s history, as Watford rose from Division Four to second place in Division One, qualified for Europe and reached their first FA Cup final in 1984.
The Honorary Life-President of the club first performed at Vicarage Road in 1974, returned in 2005 and his last concert at the stadium was in 2010.
Sir Elton performed at London’s BST Hyde Park festival on Friday with a set that spanned his career.
The 75-year-old singer and pianist performed songs from both ends of his half-century as a recording artist, commissioning late collaborators Aretha Franklin and George Michael along the way.
He was watched all the time by his young sons, Zachary and Elijah.
Sir Elton’s performance at the festival came halfway through his marathon tour.
The 300-plus global run will come to an end next year, marking his retirement from touring after 52 years on the road.
He opened Hyde Park with crowd favorite Bennie And The Jets for a set list of over 20 songs from his collection, including Rocket Man, Tiny Dancer and his first hit, Your Song, and ended with Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
