Iconic musician Sir Elton John has added two special hometown shows at Watford FC's stadium Vicarage Road to his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

The singer will play at Vicarage Road in June to wrap up the European leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. Elton has previously performed at the stadium several times, including in 1974, 2005 and 2010.

Elton became the chairman of Watford Football Club in 1976 and now has the role of an Honorary Life-President. One of the stands at Vicarage Road is named the Sir Elton John Stand.

"I simply had to play Vicarage Road a final time as part of my Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour," John said in a statement. "My relationship with the club, with the fans, the players and the staff over the years have meant the world to me. Through the good times and the bad, Watford have been a huge part of my life.

"I love the club so dearly, and have had some of the best days of my life in those stands - these shows are going to be so incredibly emotional, and to spend them surrounded by my fellow Watford fans will be wonderful," he added. "We've been on quite the journey together. Come on you 'Orns!"
