The Sudbury Community Arena marquee says a major concert announcement is coming soon and rumour has it the big act will be none other than Sir Elton John.
"We're working on it. Nothing has been finalized yet," said arena manager Ray Mensour.
Mensour said he couldn't give details about how or why the multiple Grammy-winning legend is coming to Sudbury, but he did say "it's possible." "You can say we're working on it," he said Sunday. "I can't really talk right now, but it's definitely a possibility. That's all I can really say about it at this time. "We are hoping to have an announcement soon, but nothing is confirmed at this point. Not 100 per cent."
An announcement is expected in the next couple of days.
Local musician Pandora Topp said she heard the rumour from concert promoter Ken Craig at the Michael Buble concert last week. "He had just locked it in at that time," said Topp, who performed during the Buble show.
Craig could not be reached for comment. Topp heard John was coming to play in Toronto and told the promoter he wanted to plan two gigs in places he had never been before. Topp was told the Sudbury show would take place in early March.
"It's awesome," she said.
