Elton Adds Regina & Saskatoon Dates
For months rumours have been swirling that John would follow in the footsteps of the Rolling Stones and play an outdoor concert at Mosaic Stadium in September.
The Leader-Post has learned that John will play two shows at the Brandt Centre on Sept. 16 and 17.
The Regina dates are part of a growing list of shows in Western Canada, joining Calgary (Sept. 12), Edmonton (Sept. 13) and Winnipeg (Sept. 19). Dates for Saskatoon and Vancouver might also be added in the coming days.
Speculation has been swirling that the big star will hit Saskatchewan, particularly since he officially booked shows in Calgary on Sept. 12, Edmonton on Sept. 13 and Winnipeg on Sept. 19.
Elton will play Saskatoon's Credit Union Centre on September 15. Due to overwhelming demand a second show has been added for Winnipeg, at the MTS Centre on September 20.
John is touring in Western Canada with a full band this time, according to online information. The last time John came to Saskatoon was Aug. 30, 2002, for a solo show.
