Lucky fans will get to see the legendary artist’s final London show on 24 June 2022.
The tickets go on sale at 10am and will be available here.
The plan was to play 300 shows over three years, but this was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.
“I thought the time was right to say thank you to all my fans around the world globally and then just say goodbye and have a breather. It’s not to say I’m not going to be creative anymore,” John said of the shows.
The 74-year-old said if he were to play live again after the Yellow Brick Road tour was completed, it would be “a residency like Kate Bush”.
“I don’t want to go out with a whimper – I want to go out with a big bang.”
John still plans to continue making albums and releasing music after the tour ends.

Elton John to release new album The Lockdown Sessions
09:31 , Roisin O'Connor
Elton John is releasing an album of collaborations with special guests including Lil Nas X, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Stevie Wonder, he announced earlier this month.
The Lockdown Sessions, a collection of 16 songs, will be released on 22 October by EMI Universal.
The pandemic project was spurred by John having to pause his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour in March 2020, and by his Apple Music talk show “Rocket Hour,” on which he has spoken with many of the featured artists.
“The last thing I expected to do during lockdown was make an album,” he said in a statement. “But, as the pandemic went on, oneâoff projects kept cropping up and I’ve ended with a selection of really interesting and diverse stuff that was completely different to anything I’m known for, stuff that took me out of my comfort zone into completely new territory.
“I realised there was something weirdly familiar about working like this. At the start of my career, in the late Sixties, I worked as a session musician. Working with different artists during lockdown reminded me of that. I’d come full circle: I was a session musician again. And it was still a blast.”
