Elton John lands in New Zealand - New release tickets

New Zealand gears up to welcome Sir Elton John, who kicks off the first of six Farewell Yellow Brick Road concerts at Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium tomorrow night, Tuesday 4th February.

For the next two weeks, Elton John fever will sweep the country, as the music icon makes his way across New Zealand; taking in two nights at Mission Estate in Hawkes Bay on 6th and 15th February, before delivering his swansong to Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on the 16th, 18th and 20th February, which will be his last ever concerts in New Zealand.

With plenty of great seats still available in Dunedin and all three Auckland shows, Promoter Michael Chugg is urging the country to get behind these final shows, saying –

You don’t want to be the one to say that you were in town and missed Elton’s last ever New Zealand shows. So if you haven’t yet, get your ticket now! And I can promise you this – Elton is in the best form of his life and the production is spectacular, you’ll have an absolute hell of a night. We’re gonna make New Zealand rock like you ain’t seen before – What a way to wrap up half a century of touring!”
