In 2018 the superstar announced his Farewell Yellow Brick Road show would be his last, and his second night at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm on Saturday marked the completion of a 330-date run.

He wore four dazzling costumes and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin sent a surprise message.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Sir Elton wrote: “When we set off on my final tour in 2018, I couldn’t have foreseen in my wildest dreams the twists and turns and the highs and lows this tour – and the whole world – would have experienced in the next 5 years.


“And every step of the way, my fans have been there. You have stuck with me, you have supported me, you have been patient and you have kept turning out for every single last show.

“Saturday night was magical. I’m trying to process it and I don’t think it will sink in for a while yet that I’m finally finished touring.

“I can’t tell you how much I’m going to miss you all and how much your support has humbled me – it will stay with me forever.”
