Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

The most beloved bespectacled pianist in rock 'n' roll history will take another victory lap through Florida in May 2020.

Elton John is set to perform at the American Airlines Arena May 30, 2020, and also stop in Tampa and Orlando May 26 and 28. The shows were announced Wednesday morning as part of an additional North American leg of the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, which is being billed as the singer-songwriter's final series of live performances. The tour is scheduled to conclude in 2021.

John — who has penned everything from heartbreaking rockers to glam anthems and soft-rock showstoppers during his five-decade career — last stopped in Miami last November for a show at the AA Arena. A flurry of attention has surrounded the veteran musician over the past few years: In addition to the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, John released his autobiographical book, Me, this past October and saw his career depicted on the silver screen in the critical and commercial success Rocketman.

Tickets for the Miami show and the other newly announced dates will go on sale to the general public next Friday, November 22, at 10 a.m. and can be purchased through John's website. Presales and VIP packages will be available to fan club and American Express card members beginning this Thursday, November 14, at 10 a.m. If you've never seen "Tiny Dancer" live and have been dying to, it might be best to hop on buying tickets sooner rather than later: This time might very well be your last chance.
