News: Sir Elton John To Return To Australia For ‘All The Hits Tour’

2 min read

(AUS) Sir Elton John and his band return to Australia from 5 December 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, including a selection of songs from his highly acclaimed album, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which recently celebrated its 40th anniversary with a Deluxe Edition.
