The General Public on-sale date is February 24 commencing 9am.

David Davies, CEO, Forsyth Barr Stadium commented, “The region has been incredibly supportive of the Stadium so it’s great to be able offer tickets to the ratepayers ahead of the rest of the country. This is going to be a great event for Dunedin and Otago and will set a high standard for events to come.”

The ticket prices for Elton John will range from $95 at the western end of the Stadium to a Platinum front section at $400 with plenty of options in-between. The concert will be totally seated, including the pitch area.
