In response to enormous demand, and hot on the heels of the incredible global success of the Rocketman epic musical fantasy, Elton-mania has reached fever pitch! It can today be announced that Sir Elton John has extended the Australian leg of his sold-out Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour and added concerts at Geelong’s Mt Duneed Estate and Townsville’s North Queensland Stadium.
In an incredible coup, Sir Elton has been secured to open Townsville’s brand new North Queensland Stadium on Saturday 29th February, which will be the first-ever event to take place at the venue. Following media speculation last month, the Queensland Government, Townsville City Council, Stadiums Queensland and TEL worked with promoter Chugg Entertainment to lock in the legendary artist’s return to the city in February 2020, thirteen years after his 2007 visit, which saw Elton play to a record-breaking 22,000-strong audience.
Additionally, Geelong’s Mt Duneed Estate will host the showman for A Day On The Green on Saturday 7th December, bringing his tally of Victorian shows on the Farewell Tour to eleven.
