Elton John in St. Catharines

News | May 15, 2017

Elton John and his band appear in St. Catharines for one performance at the Meridian Centre on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 8pm as part of a 6-city concert tour that will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career, as well as selected tracks from his latest release, Wonderful Crazy Night.

“The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family and less time touring,” said Elton. “I am all too aware of how precious the time ahead is. My sons are growing up so quickly. Their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them.”

Elton John’s band features Nigel Olsson (part of Elton’s original three-piece band) on drums, Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band a year later) on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards, and Matt Bissonette on bass.

One of the most successful artists on the road today, Elton and his band perform a concert you will never forget: the entire audience singing along to much-loved classic songs such as “Your Song,” “Rocket Man,” “Bennie and the Jets,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” and many more.

“This is very exciting news for St. Catharines. We’ve hosted some great shows here, and now, the largest international recording artist ever is coming to our city. We’re honoured to have Sir Elton John play at the Meridian Centre,” said Mayor Walter Sendzik.

The monumental career of international singer/songwriter and performer Elton John spans five decades. He is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 38 gold records and 31 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and he has sold more than 250 million records worldwide. John holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time,

“Candle in the Wind 1997,” which sold over 33 million copies. Since launching his first tour in 1970, he has over 4,000 performances in more than 80 countries to his credit.
