Following Elton for years, I feel like he won't be done playing any hits. He just won't be touring on the regular anymore. He very clearly stated at the beginning of this tour he didn't want to be out on the road as much, but that he might still do the one off occasionally. I don't in any way think he's less likely to play Crocodile Rock anymore as he is to be more likely to play Bite Your Lip or something. He's just kinda done touring. You throw enough money at Elton and he'll play anywhere, but it'll be for smaller audiences and this'll probably be the last time most people see him unless you're very wealthy or willing to travel.

I did read an interview where Elton said he wasn't interested in doing residencies in Vegas. He said he had done enough there. I wonder if he would consider something like Billy Joel does in MSG, perhaps in LA. There is a new arena coming for the LA Clippers & I believe the Forum is staying open.

I thought about that but I do think the "final US show" wasn't just a gimmick. He really meant it, but just on a larger scale. I could still see him doing benefits or one offs, whether those be a full show or not. I think he's largely done with stuff after this tour, but I could just see him still showing up anywhere. I don't think he'll be a hermit and he'll do the occasional song here and there. But realistically, he's old and if he doesn't keep playing he'll probably lose practice to do a full show. I doubt he does a once a month thing at a venue but he's Elton and I do think anything is possible.

Elton is great but he is milking it. Leg after Leg. As he should. The Elton marketing machine has been running like crazy with the book and movie. And also his show is fantastic.

I can see a big band doing a 10-year tour to set a new record. Some tours are short, some are long. Career earnings mean more to me than what one tour makes. Wonder what Dylan's 2021-24 tour will end up making?

At least Elton's tour is an actual farewell tour, same stage and setlist. He did 5 shows in Vancouver alone! If it wasn't for covid, it would probably be over by now.
How many people see Dylan these days? Isn't he more a theatre type draw? Does he still play major arenas?
