Sir Elton John will return to Australia in December for the All The Hits Tour.
The star will open at the Hope Estate Winery in the Hunter Valley on December 5 and close at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on December 19, the venue’s last ever show before it is demolished.
The British star has performed 179 concerts in Australia over the past 44 years – and 45 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.
He said he couldn’t wait to return Down Under.
“Australia has been one of my favourite countries to tour in ever since my first visit there at the start of my world-wide career in 1971 (it is incredible to think that my drummer on that tour, Nigel Olsson, is still with me today).
“Some of my most memorable concerts have taken place in venues all across the continent.
“The Australian audiences always seem to bring out the best in us, and I am certain there will be many more fantastic evenings when we visit in December.”
