The numbers make your head spin: 5 Grammy Awards, 50 hits in the top 40, 300 million albums sold and a record 33 million copies for the single “Candle in the Wind”. There is no doubt about it: Elton John’s success is both universal and timeless, and he is now celebrating more than fifty years of collaboration with his eternal co-author, Bernie Taupin. After more than 4000 concerts all over the world, Elton John is preparing to say goodbye to the stage through an exceptional tour entitled “Farewell Yellow Brick Road”. The legendary British artist will play the Montreux Jazz Festival for the first time at a historic show: the Festival’s first-ever open-air concert in a stadium! It was high time to hear the hits “Rocket Man”, “Your Song”, and “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” resonating in Montreux.
