Elton John Performing at A Day On The Green
In one of the most exciting announcements of 2017, a day on the green, in conjunction
with Chugg Entertainment, is thrilled to announce SIR ELTON JOHN will perform one
very special outdoor concert at Rochford Wines, Yarra Valley.
Due to unprecedented demand from fans, the iconic superstar will play one Victorian show
only on Sunday October 1 as part of his Once In A Lifetime Australian tour.
This will be Sir Elton’s first ever performance in the Yarra Valley and promises to be a
spectacular and memorable concert to be enjoyed by the whole family. Sir Elton will be
on stage at 6.00pm.
Joining Elton at a day on the green will be chart-topping Queensland duo BUSBY
MAROU, recently announced as supports for Sir Elton’s entire Australian tour, and
Melbourne singer-songwriter CHRIS WATTS.
The concert will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from his incredible five-decade
career, including a selection of songs from his highly acclaimed album Goodbye Yellow
Brick Road, which celebrated its 40th anniversary with a Deluxe Edition.
ELTON JOHN’S band includes Nigel Olsson on drums, part of Elton's original three-piece
band, as well as musical director and guitarist Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with
Elton in 1971 and joined the band a year later), Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on
percussion, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.
Sir Elton is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 38 gold and 31 platinum or
multi-platinum albums, as well as 58 Billboard Top 40 singles in the United States, and
sales of more than 250 million records worldwide. He holds the record for the biggest selling
single of all time, Candle in the Wind 1997, which sold 33 million copies, as well as
for the most appearances on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, with his most recent
single, A Good Heart (from 2016’s Wonderful Crazy Night), marking his 72nd entry. He has
also written the music for stage and screen successes Billy Elliot: The Musical, Elton John
and Tim Rice’s Aida, and The Lion King, which was named the highest-grossing stage show
in the world.
