ELTON JOHN’S FAREWELL YELLOW BRICK ROAD TOUR
SECOND & FINAL SHOWS ADDED IN
COFFS HARBOUR & THE SUNSHINE COAST
– ROCKETMAN TO PLAY 34 AUSTRALIAN & 6 NZ DATES IN 2019-2020 –
Following the announcement of six new concerts last week and overwhelming demand during the pre-sale period, Sir Elton John again extends the Australian leg of his mammoth sold out Farewell Yellow Brick RoadWorld Tour by adding new dates in Coffs Harbour and the Sunshine Coast — which will both go on-sale this Tuesday June 25 alongside the originally announced shows.
The Rocketman now plays two nights at C.ex Coffs International Stadium on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 February 2020, the first concerts ever to be staged at the newly renovated venue.
He becomes the first international recording artist ever to perform at Sunshine Coast Stadium, taking in back-to-back dates on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 March 2020.
Promoter Michael Chugg said, “The response from Coffs Harbour and the Sunshine Coast has absolutely blown us away. We worked the phones day and night with Elton’s team to find a way to add more shows and we’re over the moon we got it sorted.
“Elton is a true artist for his fans,” Chugg continued. “He has played towns in Australia that artists of his ilk never have, and the likes of which they might not see again for a long time.
“Coffs and the Sunny Coast now get twice as many chances to see the man Billboard crowned the most successful performing male solo artist of all time; and awarded this tour the Top Rock Tour of 2019.
“And it is. I’ve seen it and it’s one hell of a show. Very emotional. You don’t want to miss it, or wait to buy tickets. They sell quickly and they sell out.”
Of the new shows announced last week, Sir Elton will also officially open Townsville’s North Queensland Stadium in February 2020; along with outdoor performances at Melbourne’s AAMI Park; at the superb new home of Sydney’s west, Bankwest Stadium; and Geelong’s Mt Duneed Estate for A Day On The Green.
With today’s newly announced performances, Australia’s tally of Farewell concerts comes to 34 (40 including New Zealand’s 6 performances), beginning in Perth on 30 November 2019 and concluding in Sydney on 7 March 2020.
Tickets to the Melbourne, Coffs Harbour and A Day On The Green shows will go on sale at 9am (local), Tuesday 25 June.
Tickets for the Townsville, Sunshine Coast and Sydney shows will go on sale at 12 noon (local), Tuesday 25 June.
Since going on sale in February this year, Australia and New Zealand have snapped up tickets to Elton’s Farewell tour, with total sales exceeding half a million tickets over the 38 shows announced to date.
