The “Piano Man” and “Rocket Man” have proven to be kings of the road as they run the March leg of their 2009 Face2Face outing. Now, touring partners and worldwide music icons Elton John and Billy Joel have unveiled more concert dates this fall.
Two more performances have been added to the co-headlining run for November 4 and 7 at KeyArena at Seattle Center in Seattle, WA. The November dates mark the fourth leg on the duo’s Face2Face tour, which includes the current March performance schedule, as well as concert blocks in May and July.
John and Joel recently announced that the summer tour leg would start with the first-ever concert at Nationals Park in Washington, DC. However during initial on-sales for the event, an error with Tickets.com’s system temporarily limited access to the tickets. After the issue was corrected, additional tickets were released as an apology for the inconvenience.
Six additional dates have since been added to the summer tour, including July 16 and 21 performances at Wrigley Park in Chicago, IL. The most current version of the complete 2009 itinerary is outlined below.
Each night of the tour features the legendary performers seated at twin pianos and trading vocals. Joel and John follow the title “face to face” routine with separate sets before closing the night with another joint performance, backed by both artists’ supporting bands.
The popularity of both performers has locked their position on TicketNews’s exclusive weekly event rankings. Hosting venues have also profited from the tour, rising to top spots in weekly venue rankings during their Face2Face on-sales.
The pair’s next performance is scheduled for March 21 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX. The first round of Face2Face concerts concludes with March 28 and 30 shows at Honda Center in Anaheim, CA.
