Elton John is giving the yellow brick road a real send-off.

On Wednesday, the "Tiny Dancer" musician, 76, announced on Instagram that he would be releasing a book chronicling the journey of his five-year farewell tour titled Farewell Yellow Brick Road: Memories of My Life via Hyperion Avenue, an imprint of Disney Publishing Worldwide.

"I am incredibly excited to announce my new book, “Farewell Yellow Brick Road: Memories of My Life On Tour”, which goes behind the scenes on my final tour, from Allentown, PA, to Stockholm, Sweden and everywhere in between," he wrote.

John added: "It’s been a beautiful journey creating this book and remembering the people and places that shaped an incredible chapter in my life. As well as the stories and memories, not just from this tour but from throughout my career, I’ve included unreleased photography and memorabilia that I hope give you never-before-seen insights of my life on the road."

The five-time Grammy winner revealed the book will be released on Sept. 24.

"Rocket Club members and those buying through my official store will receive their copy two weeks early, so head to store.eltonjohn.com to pre-order your copy now," John concluded.

According to the official book description on the legendary musician's website, his tome will give readers an inside look at his "dazzling, final performances at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, his record-breaking performance at Glastonbury, his legendary touring wardrobe by Gucci, the beautifully detailed stage design, celebrity guest attendees, official tour photography, and more."

John concluded his live-touring career of over 50 years in July 2023 with a final stop on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm.

As he wrapped the show with "Your Song" and, fittingly, "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," the "Rocket Man" artist thanked fans for supporting him on tour over the last five decades.

“I’ve had the most wonderful career, beyond belief. 52 years of pure joy playing music, how lucky am I to play music? But I wouldn’t be sitting here if it wasn’t for you," John said, per The Independent. "You bought the singles, albums and CDs and more importantly you bought the tickets to the shows and you know how I love to play live."

“It’s been my lifeblood to play for you guys and you’ve been absolutely magnificent – thank you," he added. "I will never forget you guys. I’ve played so many concerts, how could I forget? You’re in my head, and my heart and my soul and I thank you so much.”
