Elton John - All The Hits Tour

Elton John Australian Tour. Elton John will be performing in Hunter Valley, Brisbane, Melbourne, Geelong, Adelaide and Sydney.

“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.” - Sir Elton John

Sir Elton John and his band return to Australia from December 5 as part of his international “All The Hits Tour.” And for the first time outside North America, audiences will see the beautiful 12m wide Chandelier, created by acclaimed Set Designer Mark Fisher, that is the centrepiece for Elton’s stage.

Elton John first performed in Australia on 17 October, 1971 at Subiaco Oval, Perth. Having played 179 concerts across the country to in excess of 1.5 million people, Elton John makes a triumphant return to the country that has welcomed him for many years. As part of this tour Elton John will play at the Qantas Credit Union Arena (formerly Sydney Entertainment Centre) on 19 December which will be the final concert in that arena prior to its scheduled closure. Elton has set a house record for performing in that venue with 45 shows to in excess of 475,000 people.

The tour will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career. Elton John’s band includes Nigel Olsson on drums, part of Elton's original three-piece band, as well as musical director Davey Johnstone on guitar, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear one of the world’s greatest pop musicians in spectacular form when Elton John returns to Australia this December.
