Elton's Coming to Melbourne Again

Following the announcement that the Rocket Man himself, Sir Elton John, will be returning to our shores in November this year to celebrate the landmark 40th anniversary of the release of the hit single, Rocket Man (I Think It's Going To Be A Long Long Time), Chugg Entertainment can today confirm that a Melbourne concert will be held on Sunday 18 November at Rod Laver Arena. Tickets for this show will go on sale at 9am, Friday 21 September.

Sir Elton John said “I have been touring Australia regularly since 1971 and it is always a joy to visit this huge, amazing country. Wherever we play we are always invited back, but we also try and visit cities where we haven’t played before. Melbourne was not in the original schedule for the 2012 tour but it is now – the fans have made it very clear that we have to play there! I am very much looking forward to seeing all the enthusiastic and loyal Melbourne fans.”

I have emiled you a picture of the ad I came across. I searched online and could find nothing on it. Chugg webpage, everywhere no mention of it at all. I am going to the sydney show the night before and would happily stay and go to see him solo. I think it would be amazing! A) I hope it is correct and B) I hope I can get ticekts. The online stuff of PNAU live looked amazing too!!! Fingers crossed :)
