It took just hours for Elton’s May 11 show at Regina’s Brandt Centre to sell out.
So another appearance–May 12–has been added.
“The Wednesday, May 11 concert sold out in record time,” Neil Donnelly, vice-president at the Brandt Centre, said. “Elton John evokes frenzied passion in his fans like no other artist. We are privileged to welcome Elton John to Regina for a second concert.”
A day earlier, on May 10, Elton will be playing the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon. Tickets are still available.
Tickets for the second Regina show will be available today at noon CT, and cost $85 and $149 each. As with the first show, there is an eight ticket limit for each customer.
As announced previously, the Rocket Man is also booked to perform in Winnipeg and Calgary. Tickets for those concerts go on sale today.
Meanwhile, it has just been announced that Elton won’t be doing a second concert in Dunedin.
The concert promoter had speculated that a second performance might be feasible if justified by ticket sales.
However, Capital C: Concerts managing director Phil Sprey said he had decided to shelve plans for another engagement.
“Capital C: Concerts has made a decision that there will be no second Dunedin concert,” he said.
The recent Christchurch earthquake was a factor in the decision, with Canterbury expected to be one of the main markets for the proposed second concert.
About 5,000 seats out of 30,000 remained on sale for the Dunedin gig, Mr Sprey said.
The opening support artist had yet to be decided, but plans for pre-concert entertainment were already under way, he added.
“A whole range of effects, including special lasers, are being included to make a spectacular light show on the night.”
Sir Elton performs in his first South Island concert in two decades at the Forsyth Barr Stadium on November 25.
