100.3 The Q presents the triumphant return of Sir Elton John and his band to Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, Saturday and Sunday March 11 and March 12 2017. It’s part of an 11-city concert tour which will see Elton performing iconic hits and classic album tracks spanning his five-decade career, along with selected tracks from his latest album, Wonderful Crazy Night. Tickets will go on sale Friday November 25 at 10am.
Are we running out of opportunities to see this legendary showman in action? Quite possibly. Says Elton, “The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family and less time touring. I am all too aware of how precious the time ahead is. My sons are growing up so quickly. Their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them”.
Elton John’s band features Mr. White Gloves ‘n Sony Headphones, Nigel Olsson (part of Elton’s original three-piece band) on drums, Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band a year later) on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards and Matt Bissonette, who’s played with everyone from The Electric Light Orchestra to Ringo Starr to David Lee Roth on bass.
Elton John has been in the international spotlight for fifty years. He’s one of the top selling artists of all time with 38 gold records and 31 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits and total record sales exceeding 250 million. He also holds the record for the biggest selling single on the planet, Candle In The Wind ’97, which sold more than 37 million copies. Since he first hit the stage in 1970, he’s played more than 4,000 concerts in more than 80 countries.
