Elton Opening Leeds Arena
Elton and his band have confirmed a show at the £60m venue on Wednesday, September 4, next year.
As things stand, he will be the first act to play the 13,500-capacity arena.
And pop’s very own Rocket Man can’t wait to get the venue’s opening season off to a flier.
He said: “It is difficult to believe that it has taken so long for such a large city to get its own arena, but it has certainly been worth the wait.”
The Leeds show will be Elton’s only indoor concert in the UK next year.
It will also be the first time he has performed with his band in Leeds since he appeared at the now-demolished Queens Hall in 1984.
“I am really looking forward to playing the city of Leeds once again,” said Elton.
* Tickets for Elton’s concert go on sale on Friday, December 8, priced from £65.
