Sir Elton John has announced one Belfast and one Dublin date on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.

He will play a string of dates across the UK and Ireland in November and December 2020 including Belfast's SSE Arena on November 30 and Dublin's 3Arena on December 4.

“The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will take us to many places that have meant a lot to me over the last fifty years," said the legendary star.

"To celebrate some of the incredible moments we’ve shared with my fans over the years will be wonderful. These shows will be very emotional, and a lot of fun.”

The singer kicked off his goodbye world tour in the US in September, and will continue to perform across the world in more than 300 shows until 2021.

He will conclude his UK tour dates at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on December 7.

The tour will span five continents, visiting North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australasia.

By the end of this week, more than half a million fans will have seen him perform on the tour so far.

Earlier this year, Sir Elton, 71, announced his farewell world tour after deciding to bow out of live performing to spend more time with his children.

The pop music star, known for a plethora of hits including I’m Still Standing, Rocket Man, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Candle In The Wind and Your Song, said that his “priorities have changed”, and that his two sons with husband David Furnish, Elijah and Zachary, had transformed their lives.

“In 2015 we sat down with a school schedule and I thought I don’t want to miss too much of this. My life has changed, my priorities have changed and my priority now is my family,” he said.

Dates for Sir Elton’s UK shows in 2019 were unveiled in September.

He will perform in Hove and Cardiff in June.

Tickets for the newly-announced string of dates in 2020 will go on general sale on Friday November 16 at 10am, with the pre-sale starting at 10am on Tuesday November 13.
