Elton John said goodbye to Pittsburgh last night. Kind of.

The 71-year-old "Rocketman" took the stage Wednesday night for his "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour at PPG Paints Arena, decked out in rose-colored, heart-shaped glasses and sparkles for days.

β€œIt’s time to come off the road so I can fully embrace the next important chapter of my life,” he writes on his website.

Well, not quite yet. Wednesday night's show was just the first of two planned concerts in Pittsburgh for his three-year long tour. It officially kicked off in Allentown on September 8 and will include over 300 stops including a second show in Pittsburgh on Nov. 13, 2019.

Check out photographer Mike Papariella's favorite shots below from Elton John's first goodbye. Pre-sale tickets for his final Pittsburgh concert go on sale at 8 a.m. on Thursday morning, with tickets for the general public going on sale at 10 a.m. on Fri., Oct. 19.
