On September 19, more than 30 years after the release of Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, John will release its follow-up, The Captain and the Kid. He and his band will debut songs from the new album at New York’s Rose Hall on September 6 before taking the show on the road.

The first leg of the Captain and the Kid North American tour kicks off September 15th in Sacramento, Calif., and runs through October 10, when John returns to Las Vegas for 10 performances of his long-running show, “The Red Piano,” at Caesar’s Palace.

The original Captain Fantastic, the first album in history to enter the U.S. charts at No. 1, was a concept album detailing the early careers of John and his song writing partner Bernie Taupin. The new album follows the same format, except this time out the songs reflect the last 30 years of that partnership.
