Elton John is to play Liverpool’s ECHO Arena in June as part of his ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’tour.
Elton releases new album ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’, on 5 February 2016, and will bring his band to the ECHO Arena for the first time since 2008.
Elton said: “The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family, and I am only too aware of just 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. So these concerts will give me the chance to thank the British audiences who have been so faithful to me over these many decades.”
Elton John first played Liverpool in 1971, and has since performed 12 shows in four venues in the city.
He added: “We cannot get to everyone but I am going to try and am very happy to be coming back to Liverpool for the first time in eight years.
“It is always a humbling experience to perform in a city that gave the world John Lennon and The Beatles , and so many other important bands as well.
“My band and I will do our best to live up to that tradition, as I have since my first show there at the Philharmonic Hall in 1971.”
Elton will play the ECHO Arena on June 14, 2016. Tickets are available through a 24hr hotline: 0844 8000 400/0844 847 2441. More details here.
