Elton’s highly anticipated return to Australia for one last tour was made possible by his promise to New Zealand fans to complete his two rescheduled shows from March 2020, which were postponed due to illness and then COVID lockdowns.

Newcastle is in for a truly special event when Elton takes to the stage with the newly announced show becoming his very first show ever in the city.

By the end of this tour, Elton will have played 236 concerts in Australia – the 3rd most for any country outside the UK & US.

Wrapping up this leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road run next January, this will be AU/NZ fans’ very last chance to catch this legendary performer live on stage. If you missed out last time, or if once wasn’t enough, come along and say goodbye to this beloved performer. Tickets will go fast – don’t miss out on this unforgettable showman!

Tickets to the newly announced concerts plus tickets to the original dates will go on sale on Monday 1 August (times staggered, visit oznz.eltonjohn.com for details).
