Elton John at Montreux
Elton John at Montreux Open-air show and extra tickets Custom-tailored setup for an extraordinary show There are some events you just can’t afford to miss, and Elton John’s farewell tour is one of them! That’s why the Montreux Jazz Festival is pulling out all the stops for his unique appearance in Switzerland in 2019. Elton John wanted his fans to enjoy an extensive stage production. The original plan for two concerts at the Auditorium Stravinski was already completely exceptional,
but Elton John decided to make his mark on the history of the Festival: more than 15,000 festivalgoers will now be able to attend his magical show outdoors. The Montreux Jazz Festival, AEG Presents, and Marshall Arts present: Sir Elton John “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” in concert on Saturday 29 June 2019 at 8pm at the Saussaz Stadium in Montreux. This unique event replaces the two concerts planned for the Auditorium Stravinski on 29 and 30 June 2019. All tickets purchased for these 2 concerts remain valid for the event at the Saussaz Stadium. Additional tickets will be available from 20 March at noon, on www.montreuxjazzfestival.com and in the usual points of sales. The stadium nestled between the lake and mountains, perched above the city of Montreux, will welcome the audience to experience a gripping musical and visual voyage that retraces 50 years of a career with countless hits and as many years of partnership in songwriting with Bernie Taupin.
A UNIQUE CHALLENGE This outsize event is not only an exceptional event: the first visit ever by Elton John to the Festival; but also the first ever open-air concert of this magnitude in a Montreux stadium. When Sir Elton John made this exceptional proposal, the entire Festival team, used to all sorts of artistic challenges and to the singular concerts that have marked its history, set about to make it a reality.
