Music legend Elton John will return to Carrow Road next year to kick off the UK leg of his final tour.

Norwich City's home stadium will play host to one of the top selling solo artists next June – the first of five planned UK performances.

Known for timeless favourites such as Rocket Man, I'm Still Standing and Tiny Dancer, John has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and boasts one diamond, 38 platinum and 26 gold-certified albums in a career spanning six decades.

It's set to be the 74-year-old's second Carrow Road gig, after wowing fans in Norwich in 2005.

John's performance, part of his 18-month Farewell Yellow Brick Road worldwide tour, will take place on Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Norwich City said the gig "completes a summer of spectacular music at Carrow Road next year", with the performance set to take place six days after The Killers' much-anticipated show at the stadium on June 9.

Chief operating officer Ben Kensell said: "We are delighted to announce Elton John will be performing the opening UK show of his world tour at Carrow Road next year.

"It’ll be great to have Elton back at Carrow Road putting on a real show for our fans once again after his previous appearance here in 2005.
