Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour
Treatment had the pleasure of working with Elton John for his final world tour Farewell Yellow Brick Road. Drawing on the incredibly rich visual history of Elton John, the tour was a celebration of his personal life, philanthropic work and 50 year career in music.
The show’s screen content had to reach spectacular heights, from drag-themed catfights to burning piano effects and giant psychedelic busts of the singer. Artists David LaChapelle, Martin Parr and Alan Aldridge were among the many collaborators working on the show, each contributing their unique style to elevate the performance.
The tour launched in September 2018 and will travel to five continents, performing more than 300 shows.
