2009 Schedule to Include Ireland

Tuesday 4 November 2008 @ 15:50 - GMT

Elton is returning to Ireland next June for an open air date in Limericks newly redeveloped Thomond Park rugby stadium. He is the first to play the newly refurbished stadium.

Tickets priced between 79.25 and 116.25 are on sale Monday, November 10 at 9 a.m.

Were delighted to be running a big, outdoor gig in Limerick for the first time, enthuses promoter Peter Aiken. The new Thomond Park is a really spectacular venue, which can comfortably hold 25,000 people. Weve staged all of Eltons recent Irish gigs from Stormont Castle to Croke Park, and he always puts on a spectacular show.

Attendees will be treated to the touring version of the $3 million Red Piano extravaganza, which has grossed $140m during its three-year, 200-show Caesars Palace residency.

The event takes place on the sixth of June.
