Second Elton John Concert Added At Victoria's Iconic Hanging Rock To Meet Demand
Due to enormous demand in pre-sales, Frontier Touring are pleased to announce a second - and final - Hanging Rock concert has been added for Sunday 26 January.
Tickets to the new show, along with the original January 25 show, will go on sale on Friday 15 February at 9am AEDT.
The January 26 Hanging Rock concert has been made possible by Kyneton & Hanging Rock Racing Club kindly agreeing to move their Australia Day race meeting to Monday 27 January.
Revealed last weekend in a hugely anticipated announcement, Sir Elton John will bring his epic Farewell Yellow Brick Road World Tour to Australia and New Zealand in November 2019 to February 2020. Demand in pre-sales for the tour have been so high an additional nine shows have been announced across the country, including Hanging Rock.
With a mammoth 24 Australian concerts now announced, the legendary performer will spend three months delivering his famed songbook to audiences across the country, beginning November 30th in Perth; 48 years on from his first ever Australian show, which took place at Perth's Subiaco Oval on 17th October, 1971.
"Australia and New Zealand, I can't wait to be with you again", said Sir Elton. "Your audiences have always been very generous towards me, and I know that this final tour will be the most memorable ever".
Complete with brand new stage production, and tour wardrobe designed by Italian fashion house Gucci, Elton John's Farewell Yellow Brick Road global tour is intimate and personal, while also spectacular and daring. Audiences will experience a rare glimpse into Elton's life, and the deeply personal meaning behind some of his greatest hits, via mesmerising, never-before-seen images and videos displayed throughout the show from his incredible 50-year career.
He will be joined by long standing band members Nigel Olsson on drums (part of Elton's original three-piece band in 1970), esteemed musical director J*Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band a year later) on guitar, virtuoso Ray Cooper on percussion, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.
Comprising more than 300 shows across five continents, the milestone itinerary will stop in Europe, North America, Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand, and marks the last tour of its kind by the celebrated songwriter and iconic showman. Almost fifty years on from his debut Australian show, Elton John has played 196 concerts and performed to more than 1.5 million people across the country in that time.
"... the time is right to say thank you to my fans and say goodbye." - Elton John
