Did anyone really think Elton John was going to say goodbye to Atlanta with a mere two shows?
The legendary musician performed at State Farm Arena in November as part of his three- year “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour, but, surprise – he’s coming back for another pair of concerts
John will return to the venue at 8 p.m. Nov. 1-2.
American Express card holders can purchase tickets from 10 a.m. Feb. 7 through 10 p.m. Feb. 11. VIP packages will also be available starting at 10 a.m. Feb. 7.

John’s performances last fall were 2 ½-hour blasts of old-fashioned rock stardom, packed with hits (with his catalog, obviously plenty is omitted, but he and the band have crafted meaty set lists) and taut musicianship.
The singer-pianist visited his sometimes-home following a couple of cancellations due to an ear infection, but sounded robust regardless.
We’re not saying this will be the final Atlanta lap on this goodbye tour – who ever knows the whims of artists? - but the opportunities to experience John live are definitely dwindling.
