Elton John To Tour Australia In December

in Live,News

Elton John will return to Australia in December for the ‘All The Hits Tour’.

Elton has performed 179 concerts in Australia over the past 44 years. His first Australian show was on 17 October, 1971 at Subiaco Oval in Perth.

As part of the tour, Elton will perform the last ever show for the Sydney Entertainment Centre on December 19, just after Cold Chisel. He has performed at the venue 45 times to over 475,000 fans.

In a statement Elton said, “Australia has been one of my favourite countries to tour in ever since my first visit there at the start of my world-wide career in 1971 (it is incredible to think that my drummer on that tour, Nigel Olsson, is still with me today). Some of my most memorable concerts have taken place in venues all across the continent. The Australian audiences always seem to bring out the best in us, and I am certain there will be many more fantastic evenings when we visit in December.”

Elton John will tour Australia for Chugg Entertainment.
