Sir Elton John announces six NZ shows as part of final world tour

Concert

Kiwis will get their last opportunity to see the legendary Elton John live in concert before he retires from touring.

The 'Benny and the Jets' hitmaker will play six NZ shows as part of his 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' World Tour in 2020.

Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium will host Sir Elton first on Tuesday, February, 4, before he plays the iconic Mission Estate show in Napier on Saturday, February 6, and Saturday February 15, before closing his NZ chapter of the tour in Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium on Sunday, February 16, 18 and 20.

"New Zealand, I can't wait to be with you again," he said. "It's now 48 years since my first ever New Zealand concert. This tour will see my 12th concert in Auckland, my 2nd concert in Dunedin at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, which I opened many years ago, and my first performance at Hawke's Bay.

I am thrilled that this final tour will see me and the band playing somewhere new in your great country.
