The initial tour included Perth, Sydney, Canberra and Launceston but missed Australia’s arts capital.

In a statement, the six-time Grammy winner said, “I have been touring Australia regularly since 1971 and it is always a joy to visit this huge, amazing country. Wherever we play we are always invited back, but we also try and visit cities where we haven’t played before. Melbourne was not in the original schedule for the 2012 tour but it is now – the fans have made it very clear that we have to play there! I am very much looking forward to seeing all the enthusiastic and loyal Melbourne fans.”

The Melbourne show will take place on 18 November at Rod Laver Arena. Tickets will go on sale at 9am September 21.

Special guests on all shows will be 2Cellos. (See interview below).

Elton’s Australian tour dates are:

November 12, Perth, Perth Arena
November 14, Canberra, Canberra Stadium
November 15, Sydney, Entertainment Centre
November 18, Melbourne, Rod Laver Arena
November 20, Launceston, Silverdome
