Elton John & His Band - Wonderful Crazy Night Tour 2016

Elton John and his band return to Johnson City, Tennessee for the first time in four years for one performance at the Freedom Hall Civic Center on Friday, March 11, 2016 at 8 pm as part of a nine-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 upcoming album Wonderful Crazy Night. The public on-sale will begin Friday, January 15th at 10 a.m.

“The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family and less time touring,” said Elton. “I am all too aware of how precious the time ahead is. My sons are growing up so quickly. Their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them. This concert will give me a chance to say thank you to my fans here who have been so faithful over the decades. It’s always important for me to bring my music to everyone.” 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.

"We are thrilled to welcome the incomparable Elton John and His Band back to Johnson City's Freedom Hall Civic Center for the first time in four years. We strive to create memorable experiences and I cannot think of a better one than this!" said Freedom Hall Civic Center’s Director, Lisa Chamness. "This is such an exciting opportunity for the people in the four-state area to have access to one of music’s most legendary performers in the world. Our intimate concert setting at Freedom Hall will make this a magical night not to be missed.” The monumental career of international singer/songwriter and performer Elton John spans five decades. He is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time with 35 gold records and 25 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and he has sold more than 250 million records worldwide. John holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind ’97,” which sold over 37 million copies. Since his career began in 1969, he has played over 4,000 concerts worldwide.
