Elton John and his band return to Bakersfield for one performance at Rabobank Arena
on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 8 PM as part of an 11-city concert tour that will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career, as well as selected tracks from his latest release, Wonderful Crazy Night.
“The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family and less time touring,” said Elton. “I am all tooaware 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.
"We are extremely delighted to welcome Sir Elton John back to Rabobank Arena as part of his 2017 World Tour," said Steve Eckerson, General Manager of AEG Bakersfield. "As Elton's previous three sold out appearances at the Arena prove, he has a vast and loyal following locally, and March 18th should be a 'Wonderful Crazy Night' in Bakersfield."
The monumental career of international singer/songwriter and performer Elton John spans five decades. He is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time with 38 gold records and 31 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and he 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 over 37 million copies. Since launching his first tour in 1970, he has played over 4,000 concerts worldwide in more than 80 countries to his credit.
