Elton has told the Airdie & Coatbridge Advertiser that he is looking forward to an “incredible reception” when he brings his world tour to Excelsior Stadium next year.
In a major coup for Monklands, the music megastar will perform in Airdrie on June 24 – and he can’t wait to come to town.
Sir Elton enthused: “The concert will be my 54th in Scotland but my first ever in Airdrie and Lanarkshire.
“I always look forward to returning to Scotland.
“We got an incredible reception in Edinburgh in June, at one of the best shows of the summer.
''And I am sure the people of Monklands will make us feel just as welcome!''
Tickets go on sale this Friday morning at 10 a.m.
However Amazon customers will be able to access a 24 pre-sale tomorrow morning at 10 a.m.
Meanwhile, in news about Elton's June 4th Derby engagement, some will be lucky enough to be able to buy tickets at least two days ahead of the general release (on September 16).
Among them are active Derbyshire County Cricket Club supporters, who have received an e-mail telling them they will get a bonus by being the first to be able to buy tickets for Elton's open-air concert at the 3aaa County Ground.
It is the first time the rocker has been to the city since 1979, when he performed at the Assembly Rooms.
These cricket club supporters will be able to buy tickets online from 10 a.m. this morning, priced £80, £60, £40 (all subject to any booking fees), two days ahead of the general public.
