Sir Elton John has shared a throwback picture of himself from a Los Angeles show in 1975 ahead of his final ever North American tour shows.
The musical megastar will perform at the Dodgers baseball stadium for three final dates this week, telling Thursday’s audience members “don’t be late”.
It will be his first time returning to the venue in almost five decades, having last performed there in 1975.
The picture showed Sir Elton poised over his piano wearing a bejewelled Dodgers team kit, in front of the packed out stadium.
The singer has been performing at multiple venues around the US and Canada as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.
“The start of my final North American tour shows and the first time back at Dodger Stadium since 1975. See you at 8pm, LA – don’t be late!” he wrote on Instagram.
Sir Elton previously said that Los Angeles had been “the setting for some of the most important moments in my life”.
“It’s a place that Bernie and I were inspired by when we created music, it’s the first place I ever performed in the USA and it’s where I’ve chosen to perform my final ever North American tour show,” he said, as he first announced the tour.
The final show at Dodgers Stadium on November 20 is due to be live-streamed on Disney+ and will feature special guests.
Following his LA shows Sir Elton will visit Australia and New Zealand, before embarking on European tour dates.
The run will end with two special concerts at Vicarage Road, the home of Watford Football Club on July 3 and 4.
