Sir Elton John has added a Victorian show to his Once In A Lifetime Australian regional tour with the iconic performer to play a special outdoor concert at Rochford Wines, Yarra Valley, as part of the a day on the green series.
With shows in Mackay, Wollongong and Cairns selling out on the first day and Hobart selling out in eight minutes, demand to see Sir Elton has been at fever pitch. And it was deafening in Victoria as promoter Michael Chugg explains. “The demand was too great to ignore. The response when we went on sale was over the top – Elton’s shows sold out in minutes.
"A lot of people from the southern states did not get a chance to buy trips to Cairns or Mackay before the shows sold out. The amount of emails, calls and messages on social media wanting a show in Victoria was overwhelming and so when Elton asked to do a Victorian show we thought a day on the green was the perfect fit.”
This will be Sir Elton’s first ever performance in the Yarra Valley; joining Sir Elton at a day on the green will be chart-topping Queensland duo Bubsy Marou, recently announced as supports for Sir Elton’s entire Australian tour, and Melbourne singer-songwriter Chris Watts.
