LOS ANGELES (KABC) — It was a night to remember for Elton John fans as the singer-songwriter performed a vibrant and emotional set at Dodger Stadium to wrap up the US leg of what is expected to be his final tour.

Los Angeles holds a special place in John’s heart, as his 1975 performances at the ballpark – in a sequined Dodgers uniform – were considered one of the most iconic shows of his early career.

On Sunday, he performed in a sparkly Dodger-themed garb that was a callback to that original outfit.

John, 75, has said he plans to retire from performing at the end of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. After wrapping up in Los Angeles, he will perform in Australia and New Zealand early next year to close out the tour.

The audience – and the stage itself – was filled with celebrities. John called Dua Lipa and Brandi Carlile to perform with him.

Carlile says Elton John has been an inspiration to her since childhood.

“It’s so amazing,” Carlile said. “It’s the first time for me and kind of the last time for him and it feels mystical.”

Elton John has a long list of hits and has sold over 300 million records worldwide. Some of his most memorable songs include “Tiny Dancer”, “Rocket Man”, “Crocodile Rock”, “Bennie and the Jets”, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “Candle in the Wind” and many, many others.

The performance at Dodger Stadium will be available to stream on Disney+.
