Elton Coming to Florida (More Shows), Georgia, Poland (Twice)

The last time Elton John played in Tampa, it was a sold-out gig in 2009 with Billy Joel.
So far, the closest he is coming on his current tour is Orlando in March, when Sir Elton will perform at the Amway Center in what's being billed as a "greatest hits" set. No new material! (Although to be honest, we wouldn't mind a couple of songs from John and Russell's The Union .) He does have a few open dates around then, though, so we'll hold out hope that a Tampa show might still be in the works. Tickets to the March 10 show will go on sale Jan. 21, and will cost $32, $82 and $137.

Music legend, Elton John is coming to Poland to give two concerts. He will play at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk on July 8, and the day before at Atlas Arena in Lodz.
Elton John last visited Poland in May 2010, with the concert at Polonia stadium in Warsaw.
