Hana Hou for Elton John in Hawai`i
By Maui Now staff
Elton John returns to Hawai`i, this time for a Greatest Hits Live concert at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu on January 6, 2012.
Elton John and his band played in Hawai`i earlier this year to sold-out crowds, that included back to back concerts on Maui on February 24 and 25, 2011.
This time around, there is only one date set, and that’s in Honolulu on the first Friday in January.
“The Blaisdell Arena is ecstatic to have Elton John return to the stage in Honolulu,” said John C. Fuhrman, Events and Services Manager of Blaisdell Arena. “January 6th will be quite a treat for our audience,” he said.
The concert will feature number one chart hits and classic album tracks Elton’s career, that spans five decades, with songs such as: Your Song, Daniel, Rocket Man, Bennie and the Jets and more.
Elton John will be joined by band members Davey Johnstone on guitar, Bob Birch on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.
Elton John is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, holding the record for the biggest selling single of all time, Candle in the Wind ’97, which sold 37 million copies.
Tickets for the Jan. 6 concert go on sale to the general public on Saturday, October 29th at 9 a.m.
Tickets are $39, $79 and $139 and will be available online at Ticketmaster.com, at the Blaisdell Center Box Office, or charge by phone at (800) 745-3000.
The concert is a Tom Moffatt Production.
