Due to overwhelming demand a second performance SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 23RD has been added by Elton John and his band, in addition to Friday, September 22, appearing live as part of his 2006 “The Captain and the Kid Tour.” The Friday September 22 show is sold out.
“We are thrilled that the response to the first Elton John show has been so strong” said Robert Nellams, acting director of Seattle Center. ”We’re honored to host such a prestigious artist for two shows at KeyArena”.
Elton John performs with his long-time band, Davey Johnstone on guitar; Guy Babylon on keyboards; Bob Birch on bass guitar; John Mahon on percussion; and Nigel Olsson on drums.
The legendary career of Elton John has spanned more than three decades. By all measures, he is one of the world’s most successful touring artists and one of the top-selling solo artists of all time. Elton John has sold more than 200 million records worldwide, with 29 consecutive Top 40 Hits and 35 gold and 25 platinum albums.
Elton is currently working on his new album, The Captain and The Kid, which will be released this September. This is the sequel to his triple platinum album Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary with an expanded deluxe edition.
While his Tony award-winning “Aida” and long-running “The Lion King” musicals reigned on tour and on Broadway, the artist wrote music for “Billy Elliot – the Musical.” Based on the similarly titled hit movie, “Billy Elliot – The Musical” debuted in London’s famed West End theatre district in May 2005 and is a smash hit. Elliot was nominated for a record 9 Oliver Awards, winning Best Musical, among others. Elton’s newest musical and first with Bernie Taupin Lestat, opened on Broadway on the 25th of April.
