If you thought that the legendary Elton John’s Saturday night gig at the Fiserv Forum was going to be his last-ever Milwaukee performance, think again.
Turns out "The Bitch is Back" and that the Yellow Brick Road is a circuitous path – one that will bring Elton back to Brew City at least one more time thanks to a newly announced show on Tuesday, April 28 at 8 p.m.
His show last weekend sold out, so you can expect this one do the same. Tickets go on sale on Friday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public from Thursday, Oct. 24 at 10 a.m. until Monday, Oct. 28 at 10 p.m. A limited number of exclusive VIP packages go on sale Thursday, Oct. 24 at 10 a.m., too.
Tickets and VIP packages are available for purchase at EltonJohn.com.
