The first leg of Elton John's "Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour" has topped the Hot Tours list, Billboard reported.

The legendary musician's 22 shows grossed $42.5 million, selling 321,984 tickets.

Sir Elton's three-year long farewell tour has so far collected $79.5 million from 588,558 tickets sold over 41 arena dates across North America.

However, his opening night on September 8 was the most disappointing, as only 8,983 fans turned out for the show held at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The North America leg of the "Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour" continues in the New Year, with a show in Boise, Idaho, on January 11.

In the Hot Tours list, compiled from Boxscores, John is followed by Sam Smith, Phish, Marc Anthony and Andrea Bocelli.
