On Friday, February 1, tickets for two shows from the Rocket Man: Number Ones tour are going on sale.

These will be available, beginning at noon, and both will feature the luminary, solo.

Elton will play the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine, on Thursday, February 28; then on March 6, also a Thursday, he'll appear at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Elton last performed in Portland in 2004, and that concert was an immediate sell-out.

It is extraordinary to have the legendary Elton John, rock musics biggest solo artist, return to Portland, Maine for the fourth time, said Steve Crane, general manager of the Cumberland County Civic Center. Eltons most recent 2004 appearance set a new record for the fastest sell-out that still stands today.

As for Manchester, this is the songwriter's third visit.

For the Civic Center, tickets will cost $67.50, $87.50 and $127.00, while the Verizon tickets are going for $72.50, $88.50 and $127.00.

The producer is Live Nation.
