There’s nothing quite like a great concert in Madison Square Garden. And when that coveted concert is a spectacular performance by none other than Sir Elton John, it’s definitely a not-to-be-missed event.

So, if you’re looking for the best of the New York concerts in March, be sure to put this one on your absolutely-must-see calendar. It’s part of Elton John’s 3-year final farewell tour, which began in September 2018 in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and will end three years later with a big splash in Europe. The bottom line is: if you’re an Elton John fan, you may never have another opportunity to see him perform again.

Magnificent Sir Elton John

With a spectacular 50-year musical history and over 300 million records sold, Sir Elton John has ridden the wave of one of the most successful entertainment careers in world history. With hits like Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Rocket Man, Candle in the Wind, I Guess That’s Why They Call it The Blues, Circle of Life, Tiny Dancer, Crocodile Rock, I’m Still Standing, Bennie and the Jets, and Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me, he never fails to wow his audiences. Big time.

Over the years, Elton John has earned an impressive 5 Grammys, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Tony Award, and a Disney Legend Award.

He has performed at sold-out events worldwide, as well as given a memorable, and heartfelt, performance of Candle in the Wind at the funeral of his close friend, Princess Diana.

The Early Years

With an unpredicted beginning, Elton’s father — although musically inclined himself — encouraged his son to take on a far more stable career in banking. However, his love for music — playing his grandmother’s piano, and his fascination with Elvis Presley — led him to his ultimate calling. And the world is grateful his dreams persevered.

Taking piano lessons at the age of 7, his gift of performing and composing bloomed early, ultimately earning him a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music by the age of eleven. Destined to become a musical legend, audiences have followed Elton John’s career for decades, and are, now, grabbing up tickets for his highly successful farewell tour.
