As noted on this Web site's News Page, Elton will be playing MacKay and Cairns in September.
This was revealed by the Premier of Queensland, Annastacia Palaszczuk.
The two engagements are expected to attract a combined 24,000 people. Other dates are expected to be announced soon.
General public tickets go on sale on March 14.
Sir Elton said he always loved coming back to Australia. "This tour will be even more memorable because it will be the first time I have ever played Mackay and Cairns...which I can't believe, but there you have it."
