Elton John to play huge Cork gig during final tour
Elton's coming to Cork.
Elton John has announced a huge gig in Cork's Páirc Uí Chaoimh on what will be his final ever tour.
The music legend is embarking on his farewell tour this year, and it's just been announced that the Cork stadium will be part of it when he comes to play at the home of Cork GAA on 1 July 2022.
It is set to be Elton's last ever time performing in Ireland before he retires, so if you want to see him live, now is your chance.
Tickets for the Farewell Yellow Brick Road go on sale on Thursday 22 July at 9am on Ticketmaster.

Cork isn't the only place in Ireland where Elton will be performing, of course. He'll also be doing shows in Dublin's 3Arena and Belfast's SSE Arena in December. Tickets for both shows are limited but you can try for Dublin here and Belfast here.
Announcing the final dates of his tour in a video message, he said: "Hello, all you wonderful fans out there. I'm coming to you today with an announcement I’ve been working towards for, well, all my life: the shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe.
"I’m going to go out in the biggest possible way, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career. Whether it’s next summer in Frankfurt or at the legendary Dodger Stadium for the grand finale in the United States, I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time.
"This has been an incredible tour so far, full of the most amazing highs, and I look forward to making more wonderful memories with you at these final shows. To all my friends down under, We'll be seeing you too. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you in your town."
