Elton John announced today that he and his band will be touring as part of his All Hits Tour. The tour features iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his extraordinary career spanning five decades.

John and his band play the Amway Center in Orlando on Saturday, March 7. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 16 at 10 a.m.
John’s band includes Davey Johnstone on guitar, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.
“We are thrilled to welcome Elton John back to the Amway Center,” said Orlando Venues Executive Director Allen Johnson. “Elton is one of the few true superstars that puts on a one-of-a-kind concert experience.”
John currently has two albums entering the Billboard Hot 100, his latest studio album, “The Diving Board,” and features 12 new songs written by John and his longtime lyricist, Bernie Taupin. The album returns John to the piano, bass and drums lineup that marked the artist’s introduction to worldwide audiences more than 40 years ago. As he explains, “I’m incredibly excited about every aspect of this album: the performances, T Bone Burnett’s production, Bernie’s lyrics and the songs we’ve created. “The Diving Board” is the album I’ve been waiting to make for decades.”
“The Diving Board” and the 40th Anniversary re-release of “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” are available on EltonJohn.com and at record outlets everywhere, including Amazon.com and iTunes.
John is winner of six Grammy Awards, five BRIT (British Record Industry Trust) awards and is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 35 gold and 25 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and has sold more than 250 million records worldwide. John holds the record for the biggest-selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind ’97,” which sold 37 million copies. He also holds the record for most appearances on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart, with his newest single, “Home Again,” marking his 69th entry. Since his career began in 1969, he has played almost 3,000 concerts across the globe. John has recently been named the first recipient of the BRITs Icon Award, which recognizes the very highest level of British music achievement, presented only to iconic artists whose writing, recording and performances set them apart as having made a lasting impact on the nation’s culture.
