Elton to Open Perth Arena in New Show Replacing George Michael
Opens Perth Arena on Saturday 10 November
Chugg Entertainment today announced that Sir Elton John and his band will be the first act to open the newly constructed Perth Arena with a 2nd Perth Concert on Saturday 10 November. This magical event will be performed “Under The Stars” with the Arena roof open. Elton John’s other Perth concert, already sold out, is on Monday 12 November.
This concert by Sir Elton John replaces the George Michael concert scheduled for 10 November.
Sir Elton John said ”My dear friend George Michael has been giving some amazing performances on the Symphonica tour, and I'm very sorry that he can't play the Perth concert. But I'm more than happy to step in for him and play the opening night at the brand new Perth Arena on November 10. It is a fabulous building and I'm told we can even have the roof open for our concert and play under the stars! My band and I will make absolutely sure that the Perth Arena has an unforgettable opening night, and we are looking forward to seeing the city come out in force to celebrate this stunning new building."
Michael Chugg said "With one show already sold out and a long and successful touring history in Perth, we are thrilled to add one more show to Sir Elton's November tour and for this to be the official opening of the new Perth Arena. As one of the greatest entertainers in the music business, this will be an incredible show for the people of Perth and a very special milestone for Sir Elton."
