If you’re like us and haven’t been able to get Elton John‘s classic tunes out of your head since watching Rocketman, we’ve got good news. He has just announced an additional six shows on his forthcoming Australian farewell tour.
John will now play an additional Day On The Green show in Geelong this December and has added shows in Melbourne, Coffs Harbour, Townsville, the Sunshine Coast and Sydney in January.
“Demand has been absolutely incredible, we know the Rocketman is going to create magic memories for Australia and New Zealand when he arrives later this year,” tour promoter Michael Chugg said.
He will also be the first music act to play the newly rebuilt Bankwest Stadium in Sydney.
“Parramatta should get ready to welcome one hell of a showman, as the first-ever concert to land at the fantastic new Bankwest Stadium,” Chugg shared.
“The venue is spectacular. It’s the most talked about new stadium Sydney has ever had, and this will be Elton’s last Australian tour, so we know it’s going to be a ripper! We’re encouraging fans to get in quickly, though, because demand will be huge and we don’t want anyone to miss out on seeing this legend live in our brand new stadium.”
