Elton John Confirmed for Auckland, NZ!
The crooner, who has a career spanning four decades in the music industry, will play one show at Auckland's Vector Arena on May 14 with his full band, TV One's Midday News reported.
Sir Elton is a regular visitor to New Zealand. He last performed in New Zealand at New Plymouth's Bowl of Brooklands in December 2007.
He also performed in Wellington at the end of 2006.
Despite the frequent visits, the May concert will be Sir Elton's first show in Auckland in 10 years, saying it was something he has wanted to do since the venue opened.
John is expected to play a wide selection of his classic tracks, as well as songs from his most recent album, The Captain & The Kid.
Sir Elton's most well-known songs include Candle in the Wind, Bennie and the Jets and Rocket Man.
Tickets for the show go on sale on April 15 through www.ticketmaster.co.nz.
