SIR Elton John is to play two dates in Glasgow as part of his three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

The rocket man legend said it will be “emotional” when he returns to UK stages in 2020.

The singer kicked off his goodbye world tour in the US in September, and will continue to perform across the world in more than 300 shows until 2021.

He will kick off at London’s O2 Arena at the start of November before playing Glasgow’s SEC Hydro on November 24 and 25.

Sir Elton said: "The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will take us to many places that have meant a lot to me over the last 50 years, but these UK shows will be incredibly special.

"The UK is home, and where my heart will always be. To celebrate some of the incredible moments we've shared with my British fans over the years will be wonderful.

"These homecoming shows will be very emotional, and a lot of fun."

The tour will span five continents, visiting North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australasia.

By the end of this week, more than half a million fans will have seen him perform.

Earlier this year, Sir Elton, 71, announced his farewell world tour after deciding to bow out of live performing to spend more time with his children.

The pop music star, known for a plethora of hits including I'm Still Standing, Rocket Man, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Candle In The Wind and Your Song, said that his "priorities have changed", and that his two sons with husband David Furnish, Elijah and Zachary, had transformed their lives.

"In 2015 we sat down with a school schedule and I thought I don't want to miss too much of this. My life has changed, my priorities have changed and my priority now is my family," he said.

Tickets for the 2020 dates will go on general sale on Friday November 16 at 10am.
