Elton will thrill audiences at Melbourne’s AAMI Park on Saturday, the 22nd of February. This will be the fifth and largest Melbourne show on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, and 50th performance in the city since his 1971 debut at Kooyong Stadium.
On the 26th of the month, the star will deliver the first music performance ever to be staged at Coff Harbour’s C.ex Coffs International Stadium and becomes the first international recording artist to play at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Tuesday, the third of March.
In an incredible coup, Sir Elton has been secured to open Townsville’s brand new North Queensland Stadium on Saturday, Feb. 29th, which will be the first-ever event to take place at the venue. Following media speculation last month, the Queensland Government, Townsville City Council, Stadiums Queensland and TEL worked with promoter Chugg Entertainment to lock in the artist’s return to the city in February 2020, thirteen years after his 2007 visit, which saw Elton play to a record-breaking 22,000-strong audience.
His final stop this year on the Australia-New Zealand leg of the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will land at the newly rebuilt Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta on Saturday, March 7th, becoming the very first music performance to take place at the Western Sydney venue.
Of course, this doesn’t include the two New Zealand appearances Elton had to reschedule because of illness. As previously announced, he’s to take the stage at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on January 15th and 16th in 2021.
