Elton John and his band return to Victoria for two performances at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre on Saturday, March 11, 2017 and Sunday, March 12, 2017 at 8pm as part of an 11 city concert tour that will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career, as well as selected tracks from his latest release, Wonderful Crazy Night.

Elton John’s band features Nigel Olsson (part of Elton’s original three-piece band) on drums, Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band a year later) on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards and Matt Bissonette on bass.

One of the most successful artists on the road today, Elton and his band perform a concert you will never forget: the entire audience singing along to much-loved classic songs such as “Your Song”, “Rocket Man”, “Bennie and the Jets”, “Philadelphia Freedom”, “Crocodile Rock”, “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”, and many more.

“It’s thrilling to have Sir Elton John coming to Victoria,” said Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps. "Victoria has a rich arts and culture scene and having Elton John play here isgreat profile for our creative culture and great for residents who get to see this wonderful musical icon live.”
