Elton John has expanded his plans winter and spring tour plans for North America. The rock musician will hit arenas and conventions centers across the continent over nearly three months.
The 20-city trek launches early next week with a February 14-15 stand at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria, BC. And thanks to the recent unveiling of more dates, John’s concert calendar now stretches through a May 6 performance at the Entertainment Covention Center in Duluth, MN.
Along the way, performances are also booked for February 24-25 at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center in Kahului, HI; March 16 at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY; March 25 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA; and April 9 at Taco Bell Arena in Boise, ID.
Public onsales are already underway in select markets. Remaining ticket sales open this coming Valentine’s Day weekend — February 11 in Boise; February 12 in Bismarck, Billings, Rochester, Spokane and Wilkes-Barre; and February 14 in Duluth.
Ticket prices vary slightly depending on the market. According to Ticketmaster.com listings, most are priced in the ballpark of $27 up to $137, before applicable fees.
The winter and spring tour will feature a selection of the “Rocket Man’s” greatest hits. John will be accompanied by current Elton John Band members Davey Johnstone (guitar), Bob Birch (bass), John Mahon (percussion), Nigel Olsson (drums), and Kim Bullard (keyboards).
John has toured extensively in recent years, including two high-profile co-headlining jaunts in North America. Most recently, he completed the Union Tour with Leon Russell in fall 2010. Earlier that year, he also wrapped the last dates of his Face 2 Face Tour with Billy Joel, which began in 2009.
