New Zealand gears up to welcome Sir Elton John, who kicked off the first of six Farewell Yellow Brick Road concerts at Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium last 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 swan-song 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 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 he 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!”
Elton’s farewell concerts have already taken Australia by storm, garnering consistently rave reviews since the tour kicked off in Perth WA on November 30, 2019.
