“But I want to take this opportunity very early in 2023, say thank you because 2022 is great and let’s hope 2023 will be just as good.
“But you are amazing. Your support has been great. I love you dearly and I will see you next at Newcastle in Australia on January 8. From then on, it will continue to grow until July 8 in Stockholm. Farewell!”
Elton John is currently performing around the world as part of his post-retirement farewell tour, which ends in the summer.

“Can’t wait to see what next year has in store for us!”
