Elton John heading home for three-date UK tour in 2016
The great British showman announces huge shows in Lincoln, Leicester and Exeter
This article is from 2015.
Elton John has announced a return to British shores for three massive, outdoor shows in June 2016. The tour kicks off Fri 10 Jun at the Lincoln Showground then heading to Leicester Cricket Club before rounding off in Devon at the Westpoint Exeter.
One of the most recognisable, most decorated and best-selling British artists of all time, Elton John sounds rather nostalgic about this homecoming. Having recently spent his time touring several of the world’s most recognisable venues – including a pair of residencies at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Elton remarks: ‘The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family, and I am only too aware of just 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. So these concerts will give me the chance to thank the British audiences who have been so faithful to me over these many decades. We cannot get to everyone, but I am going to try.’
With that last comment in mind, don’t be surprised if more dates are added later.
Elton John UK tour dates:
Fri 10 Jun – Lincoln Showground, Lincon

Sun 19 Jun – Westpoint Exeter, Exeter
