New dates have been announced for Elton John's rescheduled Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.

The North American tour will now kick off on January 19, 2022 in New Orleans. The oringinal tour dates were scheduled to take place in 2020 but were postponed in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tour will also make stops in Houston, Chicago, Toronto, New York and Miami among others.

In a Facebook video, the singer shared the news of the rescheduled North American tour and his excitement to get back to his fans across the globe.

"I've been enjoying my time at home with the family while the world navigates its way through the COVID pandemic. But, I really miss being on the road and performing for my beloved fans in my Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour. While the scientists are making great progress, we are making big plans for a return to touring that will allow us to ensure the health and safety of everyone. I will be starting my tour again in Europe and the UK in the Fall of 2021. And I will be back in North America starting in January 2022. This means my New Zealand dates will be postponed until 2023. Don't worry about me. I'm using my downtime to keep myself fighting fit and healthier than ever. I'm raring to go! As always, thank you so much for your loyal support. I look forward to seeing all you wonderful Elton John fans soon. In the meantime, please stay safe and be well. Thank you!"

AEG Presents, the company promoting the tour, says ticketholders for all postponed performances will receive new event information shortly and that all original tickets will be honored at the rescheduled performances.

The rescheduled tour begins on Tuesday, January 19 at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.
