Elton John is regarded as one of the most iconic musicians of all time, and thousands of fans are expected to attend his shows due to his popularity. His farewell tour in Los Angeles recently had so many concertgoers that it caused a major problem; what happened?
According to Dodgers Nation, many fans missed the singer’s show’s start because hundreds of vehicles were still attempting to enter the Dodgers’ Stadium parking lot.
Some of them vented their rage on social media, with one user writing:
“Where the s*** was traffic control for a massive concert??? 2 total hours in traffic and 3 hours of show. Missed the first two songs and those tix ain’t cheap! What a shit show. Be warned this weekend Elton John concert goers!”
Another user revealed that it took them three hours just to get into the iconic venue to see the legendary musician.
One concertgoer begged the “Your Song” hitmaker to take a few minutes off because they had paid $500 to see him perform but were stuck in traffic.
Although many fans were dissatisfied with the traffic to Elton John’s concert, some of them enjoyed the show despite the major issue they encountered before entering the venue.
“Elton John…worth the traffic!!! @ Dodger Stadium.”
Elton John has two more shows at Dodgers Stadium this weekend, and many fans shared tips on how to get there on time on social media.
“Dodgers’ Stadium traffic is always terrible. If you live in LA, you should be aware of this and leave for your event accordingly. I’ve been to two concerts there recently (Lady Gaga & Elton John – both EPIC!) and I made them both on time. #planbetter.”
According to early reports, John’s concerts at the iconic venue would feature special guests such as Dua Lipa, Kiki Dee, and Brandi Carlile.
The concert will be streamed on Disney+ under the title “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road: The Final Elton John Performances And the Years That Made His Legend” for fans who missed the show. Starting November 20, the singer’s performance will be available on the platform.
