SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — As one of the most iconic music stars, Elton John is finally ending his music touring career by going on tour one last time.

"Elton John Farewell Yellow Brick Road: The Final Tour" will take place at Petco Park on Wednesday night. His arrival is a warm welcome following a rainy and windy Election Day in San Diego County.

If you're planning to go, there are a few things you should know before you go.

  • All gates will open at 6 p.m. and no re-entry will be allowed. 
  • Elton John will take the stage promptly at 8 p.m. as there are no opening acts. 
  • Guests are not permitted to bring outside food or beverage, including factory sealed water bottles and reusable water bottles.
  • Petco Park prohibits bags except for single compartment bags measuring 7” x 10” or smaller, infant bags, and medical bags. Petco Park offers mobile lockers for rent located at the Premier Lot near the pedestrian bridge across from the Home Plate Gate. Lockers are $12 (cashless) and will remain open for 30 minutes after the conclusion of the event.

The iconic music star will also tour throughout Europe, including shows in Frankfurt, Milan, Liverpool, and Paris.

Early in his career, he was known for flamboyant costumes and wild glasses. He's taken the stage wearing a duck suit, a sequined baseball uniform and a Ronald McDonald outfit. He wore the colorful clothes to help create a spectacle and offset his shyness onstage.
