Elton Not Hosting ARIA Awards
ELTON John has agreed to add a Sydney show to his tour at the end of the year but many of his most loyal fans in Sin City will miss out.
Instead of playing the larger Sydney Entertainment Centre where he holds the record for the amount of concerts, John will perform at the "intimate" Lyric Theatre at Star City.
About 2000 fans will enjoy the show, which is being billed as a "pre-tour opener" for $255 a ticket.
The timing of the tour has now ruled out the Rocket Man as host of the 25th anniversary of the ARIA Awards in mid-November.
No doubt he will still record a video message parodying his famous line at the first ARIA awards when he told the 500 industry types to never allow the event to be televised because it would stop being fun.
