The brief run of gigs Down Under is made up of three shows at outdoor venues he’s never played before.

Sept. 22 – MacKay, Australia, BB Print Stadium Mackay
Sept 24 – Wollongong, Australia, Win Entertainment Centre
Sept. 30 – Cairns, Australia, Cazaly’s Stadium

An announcement on Elton’s website says that onsale details for Rocket Tickets and “Behind the Piano Backstage Tour Packages” will be revealed soon.

Elton also has previously announced headline dates booked in North America, South America and Europe, as well as another run of “Million Dollar Piano” residency gigs in Las Vegas. Visit EltonJohn.com for more information.
