Elton John and his band return to Ontario for two performances, Rogers K-Rock Centre in Kingston on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 and Meridian Centre in St. Catharines on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 as part of a 6-city concert tour that will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career, as well as selected tracks from his latest release, Wonderful Crazy Night.
The public on-sale will begin Friday, May 12 at 10 a.m. Visit Ticketmaster.ca for more information.
“The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family and less time touring,” said Elton. “I am all too aware of how precious the time ahead is. My sons are growing up so quickly. Their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them.”
Elton John’s band features Nigel Olsson (part of Elton’s original three-piece band) on drums, Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band a year later) on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards, and Matt Bissonette on bass.
One of the most successful artists on the road today, Elton and his band perform a concert you will never forget: the entire audience singing along to much-loved classic songs such as “Your Song,” “Rocket Man,” “Bennie and the Jets,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” and many more.
“Kingston is happy to welcome Sir Elton John back to our community this fall,” says Mayor Bryan Paterson. “We are proud the Rogers K-Rock Centre, seven-time winner of Major Facility of Year, was one of only two Ontario locations selected to host what promises to be an incredible show by one of the most popular and highly acclaimed artists of all time.”
