“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.
“To say that we are excited about Sir Elton John returning to Spokane is an understatement,” said Spokane Arena GM Matt Gibson. “When we were offered the opportunity to host again, our immediate answer was yes. Sir Elton is a consummate showman; his return to the Inland Northwest will be an event like no other!”
