Sir Elton John is hitting the road for the last time.

The award-winning singer announced his "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour on Wednesday, a three-year, 300-date tour that will take him to North America, Asia, Europe, Australia and South America.

"Performing live fuels me and I'm ecstatic to humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe," the singer said in a news release. "I plan to bring the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades to my final tour."

The tour is scheduled to stop at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona on Jan. 26, 2019. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Feb. 2, 2018, at 10 a.m.

"After the tour finishes, I'm very much looking forward to closing off that chapter of my life by saying farewell to life on the road. I need to dedicate more time to raising my children," the singer said.
