2nd Hobart Show Announced, More Tickets for Aussie Shows
The music legend will take to the stage twice at Derwent Entertainment Centre, with the second gig locked in for Thursday, 28 September.
Revered Aussie promoter, Michael Chugg, said of the news, "I trusted in Tassie, I knew they'd bring it home.
"The turnout for tickets on Elton's first show was fantastic, and I'm trusting it will be just as strong for this second one. But it's really Elton we have to thank for agreeing to go again."
Tasmania wasn't the only city that sold well either, as more than 50,000 tickets for John's shows in Mackay, Cairns and Wollongong were snapped up yesterday.
Tickets for the new Hobart show go on sale from 9am next Monday (20 March)

WORKING with Sir Elton John's production personnel overnight, it can today be revealed that a final release of tickets for the artist's three Australian-exclusive Once In A Lifetime outdoor stadium shows in Mackay, Cairns and Wollongong will go on sale on Monday, March 20.
This announcement follows yesterday's addition of a second Hobart show.
Because no extra stadium shows will be added, Michael Chugg, the promoter bringing the superstar to Australia, has worked with Elton's team to adjust staging across all three stadium concerts this September, to open up an absolute final release of tickets.
For anyone who missed out, but wants to be a part of these truly Once In A Lifetime concerts, a new ticket price of $69.90 has been introduced for seats that may have restricted views.
Final release tickets for Mackay, Wollongong and Cairns will go on sale on Monday 20th March.

“A month or so ago (Sir Elton) had his stage manager up here ... and he talked about positioning the piano, which way he likes to face, the way he sets up the stage.
“The size of it is going to be very impressive, up there with the best concerts anyone has ever been to.”
While a new Hobart show has been added to Sir Elton’s tour, Chugg Entertainment has flagged there will be no opportunity for a repeat performance in the Far North.
