Known for the electrifying performances, iconic songs and the flawless vocal prowess of the man himself, Elton John tour dates are undoubtedly some of the most eagerly anticipated events on music calendars the world over. Indeed, the most recent Elton John concert schedule which is currently in motion, sees Elton John tour dates taking place everywhere from the U.K, U.S. and Ireland, to Canada, mainland Europe and New Zealand.
Music is in his blood. He began playing piano at the age of three, and at just 11 years old, Elton John won a junior scholarship to the prestigious Royal Academy of Music. However, from there, the journey to the top of the charts was neither quick, nor easy. Before the sold out Elton John tour dates of today were but a glimmer in his eye, the star honed his craft and paid his dues, singing in a choir, securing weekly piano / singing gigs in local pubs, and exploring the group and band scene with various other musicians. Indeed, it was from Elton Dean and Long John Baldry - the saxophonist and frontman of ‘Bluesology’ (Elton John’s first band) – that the now legendary star took his stage name.
Elton John first met long-time songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin in 1967 after they both responded to a talent-seeking advert in the New Musical Express. At this point in time, the two have collaborated on over 30 albums.
When the megastar isn’t devoting all his time and energy to those Elton John tour dates, he is a fierce supporter of AIDS research, having lost many of his own friends to the disease. In 1992, Elton John established his own charity, the Elton John Aids Foundation which now stands today as one of the world’s leading non-profit HIV/AIDS organizations working to promote HIV prevention, as well as providing support for HIV/AIDS sufferers. Elton John is also passionately involved in efforts to rid society of the stigma attached to the disease, as well as the discrimination so often directed towards HIV/AIDS sufferers.
