One Concert! One Date! One Superstar!


After nine years, Elton John and his band will return to Westpac Stadium, Wellington for one spectacular concert!

The November 21, 2015 concert will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career, as well as a selection of songs from his highly-acclaimed album, the recently re-released 40th Anniversary CD,

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.

Elton John’s band includes Davey Johnstone on guitar, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.

Phil Sprey director of Capital C: Concerts says "In the last decade we have been privileged to bring this legendary superstar to nearly 100,000 New Zealanders and welcome him back for what will be a sensational night in the Capital".

Elton is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 35 gold and 25 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and he has sold more than 250 million records worldwide. Elton holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time, "Candle in the Wind ’97," which sold 37 million copies. He also holds the record for most appearances on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart, with his newest single, "Home Again" marking his 69th entry. Since his career began in 1969 he has played almost 3,500 concerts worldwide. John has recently been named the first recipient of the BRITs Icon Award, which recognizes the very highest level of British music achievement, presented only to

iconic artists whose writing, recording and performances set them apart as having made a lasting impact on the nation’s culture.
