Revealed: This is what Elton John will be singing at concert

ELTON John is set to serenade Brisbane on Wednesday and Thursday nights as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road World Tour.

The larger-than-life musician is touring Australia for the final time, performing 15 shows from November to January.

The 72-year-old singer has struggled to keep out of the spotlight during his tour in Australia, swearing at security guards during the show and being caught throwing his bag out of the plane.

But despite the stories during his visit, Sir Elton has earned raved reviews for his show, where he will be performing hits including Tiny Dancer and Crocodile Rock.

After playing Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Sir Elton will return to the venue on January 16 and also play Sirromet Wines southeast of Brisbane on January 18-19.
