After decades of unforgettable concert experiences, Sir Elton John took the stage Sunday night at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles for his final North American live performance.

The last stop on the North American run of his extended Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which began in 2018 and has continued around the world (with a few pandemic-caused delays along the way), Elton and his band only have remaining 2023 shows in Australia, New Zealand and parts of Europe and the U.K.

But Sunday night, the last of three shows at Dodger Stadium, was the exclamation point on decades’ worth of incredible shows from Elton and his amazing band.

Matching the excitement of the celebratory nature of the concert, Elton and his band turned in a marathon performance of songs from throughout his career. For those unable to attend the gig in person, the entire concert was streamed live on Disney+ to audiences around the world — the first live stream production put on by the streaming service.

It’s currently available to re-watch in full for Disney+ subscribers — click here.

Complete with a pre-show introduction featuring shout-outs from many of Elton John’s celebrity fans and friends around the world, it was a glorious, nearly three-hour production that thankfully is available on demand for those with a Disney+ subscription.
