Elton Confirmed for Argentina & Chile

More dates are now confirmed for Elton and the band's Latin America tour next year. As well as the Brazil dates already announced, Elton will be performing on Thursday, January 22 at Boca Juniors Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and on Saturday, January 24 at Club Hípico de Santiago, Santiago, Chile. These concerts are part of the 'Rocket Man' tour. James Blunt will be special guest at both these concerts.

The Rocket Man tour began in 2007, just after the release of the CD Rocket Man - The Definitive Hits. This tour has seen Elton and the band perform over 60 concerts across the world - in Europe, Asia, Australasia, Africa, North America and now in Latin America.

Elton will be performing with musicians Davey Johnstone (guitar and vocals), Guy Babylon (keyboards), Bob Birch (bass and vocals), John Mahon (percussion and vocals) and Nigel Olsson (drums and vocals).

Opening for Elton will be the phenomenal young British singer, James Blunt. During his prodigious career James has released only two albums so far, but he has already sold over 14 million copies around the world. The single You're Beautiful was the first British single to reach the # 1 position in the USA since Elton topped the charts there with Candle in the Wind 1997. In Brazil, James Blunt will be performing with his band, Paul Beard (piano, keyboards and vocals), Ben Castle (guitar and vocals), John Garrison (bass and vocals) and Karl Brazil (drums and vocals).
