Elton John and His Band kick-off their Australian-exclusive Once In A Lifetime concerts at Mackay’s BB Print stadium on September 22.
It's the 50th Anniversary Year of the Elton John / Bernie Taupin writing partnership. Sir Elton John will entertain the audiences in north Queensland outdoor venues, songs that he has never before played.
General Admission Gates Open > 5pm
Reserved Seating Open > 5.30pm
All the information is important, but some highlights for your attention are:
- Updated security measures mean there’s new conditions which apply to what bag sizes will be allowed into the concert. Consider bringing only what fits in your pockets, but if not, take the time to check the new measurements and ensure your bag complies. Any bag larger than the allowed size, and/or any prohibited items, will need to be cloaked (which may involve long queues and delay your entry into the concert).
- Remember to bring your ticket (obviously!), but also valid PHOTO ID, especially if you plan to consume alcohol.
- And on that, food and beverage outlets are CASH ONLY!
Sir Elton John said “I always love coming back to Australia. It holds a very special place in my heart, ever since my first visit there at the start of my world-wide career in 1971.
"My band and I are really looking forward to playing there again in September and this tour will be even more memorable because it will be the first time I have ever played in Mackay and Cairns…which I can’t believe, but there you have it. If the audiences are anything like those at the other shows we have done in Queensland over the years, everyone will surely be in for a wonderful crazy night!”
"He plays his audience as deftly as his piano, going up and down the scale of emotion with complete control and with resounding results” – Variety
