Elton to Return to Nottingham, But Play Leigh And Colchester For The First Time

Written by Chief Editor.

Elton has announced a trio of UK shows due to take place next year.

The music man and his band will play in Leigh, Nottingham and Colchester in June.

They will hit the Sports Village Stadium in Leigh on June 21 before travelling to Nottingham's Capital FM Arena three days later.

On June 29, they are to appear at Colchester's Community Stadium.

Speaking about his new UK shows, Elton said: "As I have said when asked about the song Home Again on my new album, The Diving Board, there is something very special to me about coming home.

"I’ve been all around the world and I truly enjoy playing my music for fans everywhere I can, but I do so look forward to coming back home to England, especially every summer when I get to perform in places I have never played before, like Leigh and Colchester. And Nottingham has always been a special place for me, as I first played there all the way back in 1967 as a member of Bluesology, on the same bill as Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Cliff!"

Tickets for the three dates will go on sale this Friday, November 8, at 10 a.m.
