After postponing several shows because of the coronavirus pandemic, Elton John is saying hello to the yellow brick road of touring.

The pop icon announced Wednesday that his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour” will return to North America on Jan. 19, 2022 in New Orleans.

His global tour will officially return on September 1, 2021 in Berlin.

"I really miss being on the road and performing for my beloved fans," John said in a video posted to social media. "While the scientists are making great progress, we are making big plans for a return to touring that will allow us to ensure the health and safety of everyone."

John also announced rescheduled 2022 dates for Houston, Detroit, New York City, Miami, Toronto and Montreal.

The Oscar, Grammy and Tony-winning star’s final tour kicked off to a sold-out audience in Sept. 2018.

Original tickets will be honored at the rescheduled performances.
