GOOD-BYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

As Elton embarks on his final world tour, I've been presented with many opportunities to reflect on our musical career. We celebrated our creative partnership at a gala in Los Angeles in 2017, I joined him for his last weekend during his final La Vegas performances, we've co-hosted a YouTube contest where other artists reinterpreted our songs visually, we were honored with a CBS Grammy Salute presentation, and we both executive produced two new albums with covers of some of our biggest hits sung by other artists.

I am often asked how I feel about our biggest hits - how do I interpret them today as I reflect on the last 50 years of my professional life? As the tour has begun, I am more overwhelmed than ever before by the sell-out crowds singing along to every song.

Fans share often that my lyrics and Elton's melodies have shaped and changed their lives in dramatic, everlasting ways. How can I possibly express my gratitude to the millions of fans who have impacted my life? Your love and loyalty has meant everything...

Vaya Con Dios,

Bernie
