After the announcement the "Farewell Yellow Brick Road World Tour" will be heading to Coffs Harbour in February 2020, Sir Elton John has announced he will be adding a second show for the region.
The Rocketman now plays two nights at C.ex Coffs International Stadium on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 February 2020, the first concerts ever to be staged at the newly renovated venue.
Promoter Michael Chugg said, “The response from Coffs Harbour and the Sunshine Coast has absolutely blown us away. We worked the phones day and night with Elton’s team to find a way to add more shows and we’re over the moon we got it sorted.
“Elton is a true artist for his fans,” Chugg continued. “He has played towns in Australia that artists of his ilk never have, and the likes of which they might not see again for a long time.
“Coffs and the Sunny Coast now get twice as many chances to see the man Billboard crowned the most successful performing male solo artist of all time; and awarded this tour the Top Rock Tour of 2019.
“And it is. I’ve seen it and it’s one hell of a show. Very emotional. You don’t want to miss it, or wait to buy tickets. They sell quickly and they sell out.”
Tickets to the Melbourne, Coffs Harbour and A Day On The Green shows will go on sale at 9am (local), Tuesday 25 June.
Since going on sale in February this year, Australia and New Zealand have snapped up tickets to Elton’s Farewell tour, with total sales exceeding half a million tickets over the 38 shows announced to date.
