Face to Face 2009 is a 2009 concert tour by Elton John and Billy Joel. The tour originally consisted of four legs throughout the year. The last leg, in the fall of 2009 was cancelled to an E. coli infection that Elton had picked up.[1]

Joel stated in 2012 that he would no longer tour with Elton due to the fact that it restrains his setlists.[2][3]

Tour[edit]

The cancelled shows were rescheduled for the following year (Face to Face 2010).[4][5][6][7]

The first two legs focused on arenas in the United States as would have the fourth leg, but it was cancelled. The third leg focused on the major baseball stadiums in the United States.[8]
