The rumours that Elton would visit Regina are correct, with a couple of qualifiers.

For months talk around the Queen City was that Elton would follow in the footsteps of the Rolling Stones and play an outdoor concert at Mosaic Stadium in September.

Instead, the singer is doing two shows, both at the Brandt Centre, on the16th and 17th.

The Regina dates are part of a growing list of shows in Western Canada, joining Calgary (September 12), Edmonton (one day later) and Winnipeg (September 19).

Ticketmaster has added Saskatoon's Credit Union Centre on September 15, to its Web site, although ticket details have yet to be announced.

However, with Elton's Winnipeg concert selling out so rapidly for the 19th, another engagement has been tacked on to the star's growing list of live appearances. He will play with his band on September 20, so more MTS Centre tickets shall be available on Monday, the 23rd of June, at 10 a.m.

We are ecstatic that Elton John has selected Winnipeg as part of his Western Canadian tour and his first performance ever in the MTS Centre. This show has unprecedented buzz both in the city and throughout the province and we are excited to have one of the worlds most dynamic and entertaining performers in Winnipeg. said Jim Ludlow, President of MTS Centre, after learning about the first of the pianist's two stops at the establishment.

Vancouver might also be added in the coming days.
