Elton Coming to Scotland, Wales
Elton and the band are to play two warm up indoor shows in Cardiff and Glasgow next summer, ahead of the previously announced stadium shows in Shrewsbury, Northampton and Hove.
The dates are: Wednesday 8 June 2011, Cardiff International Arena, Wales
Friday 10 June, SECC, Glasgow, Scotland.
Elton will return to Cardiff for the first time since his sold out show in 2005. He last played Glasgow in 2009. This new Glasgow date will mark his eighth appearance in a little over a decade at the SECC, with combined ticket sales in excess of 65,000.
