PHOTO: Elton John Welcomes Delilah to Farewell Tour Stop

ELTON JOHN welcomed the queen of sappy love songs, DELILAH, to his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour recently.

The two long-time friends caught up backstage after the sold out show on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, WA.

Sir Elton opened up to Delilah recently on an episode of her podcast, Love Someone with Delilah, talking about the film Rocketman, the reason why this is his last tour - ever, his family, sobriety and more.

After more than half a century on the road, the icon is in the midst of his farewell tour, which consists of over 300 performances across five continents.

Delilah says: "I have long admired Elton John, and fell in love with his music waaaaaay back in the day with hits like "Honkey Cat," "Island Girl," and "Crocodile Rock." I've played his songs, been to his concerts, watched his life unfold in the media, and even had the chance to interview him a time or two, but NEVER did I have a sense that I really knew the man behind the giant sequined sunglasses until I watched the biopic, Rocket Man!

On this episode of Love Someone with Delilah, Elton and I had an absolutely lovely conversation about the movie, and how closely it resembles his life, his music - old and new - his past addictions and current sobriety, the changes of perspective and motivations that children bring, and of course, his Farewell Concert Tour.  What an incredible man!

Join Delilah and Elton as they chat, and listen for this gem, "The philosophy of getting sober is helping others.""

Past podcast episodes have included Gloria Gaynor, Daughtry, Katy Perry, Wynonna, Michael Buble', Barry Manilow, Sam Smith, Miranda Lambert and more. Click here to visit the podcast page on Delilah's website.
