Chugg Entertainment has announced that Sir Elton and his band will be the first act to open the newly constructed Perth Arena with a second Perth show on Saturday, November 10. This magical event, replacing the George Michael concert, will be performed Under The Stars with the arena roof open. Eltons other Perth engagement, already sold out, is on Monday, November 12.

Tickets for November 10 will be available, starting 9 a.m., on Wednesday, October 10. The former Wham! frontman has canceled his tour of Australia because of ”major anxiety,” brought on by his battle last year with severe pneumonia, he explained on his Web site. But he plans to complete his Symphonica Tour dates in Britain this month before seeking treatment.

Elton commented:

My dear friend George Michael has been giving some amazing performances on the Symphonica tour, and I’m very sorry that he can’t play the Perth concert. But I’m more than happy to step in for him and play the opening night at the brand new Perth Arena on November 10. It is a fabulous building and I’m told we can even have the roof open for our concert and play under the stars! My band and I will make absolutely sure that the Perth Arena has an unforgettable opening night, and we are looking forward to seeing the city come out in force to celebrate this stunning new building.”

Michael Chugg said, “With one show already sold out and a long and successful touring history in Perth, we are thrilled to add one more show to Sir Elton’s November tour and for this to be the official opening of the new Perth Arena. As one of the greatest entertainers in the music business, this will be an incredible show for the people of Perth and a very special milestone for Sir Elton.”
