On Saturday March 31 Elton played his most northerly concert to date, when he and Ray Cooper performed their two-man show inside the Arctic Circle at Skarphallen, Tromsø, Norway, as part of the Døgnvill Vinter Festival. This location has superceded Elton's previous most northerly concert which was in 2003 in Trondheim, Norway.
Elton's most southerly concert was in 2011 in Dunedin, New Zealand.
As a lifelong compiler of lists and recorder of statistics, Elton enjoys milestone achievements, such as in October 2011 when he played his 3000th concert, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Elton is now on the Quest for 100 countries - trying to break the record for the total number of countries played!
