On Tuesday (June 18), the Toronto International Film Festival announced its first slate of film premieres, including the world debut of Elton John: Never Too Late. Directed by David Furnish, who is John’s husband, and R.J. Cutler, the new documentary will premiere at TIFF in September alongside Amy Adams’ new horror-comedy Nightbitch and Mike Flanagan’s The Life of Chuck.

According to IMDb, John’s new documentary will show “never-before-seen concert footage of him over the past 50 years, as well as hand-written journals and present-day footage of him and his family.” A report from Deadline back in May 2022 added that the documentary will focus on John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, documenting his final shows in the U.S., “culminating in his November performance at Dodger Stadium in his final North American show.”

John’s farewell shows went on to do more than just close his touring career. During its four year run, the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour became the first in history to cross the $900 million mark, making it the highest grossing tour in history by the time it wrapped in July 2023.

Recently, John’s efforts have been focused on his charitable work with the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Shortly before the start of Pride Month, the singer announced the organization’s “Speak Up Sing Out” challenge, asking fans to perform a section of his classic hit “Your Song” before tagging someone who inspires them. One entrant will win an opportunity to meet John and Furnish in person.
