The Greatest Hits Tour[1] is a concert tour by Elton John. The tour started on February 2011 in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada[2] and has visited the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australasia. The tour placed ninth on Pollstar's "Top 50 Worldwide Tours (Mid-Year)", earning over $40 million with 57 shows.[3]

Background[edit]

The first edition of the tour took place in 2011 in Victoria, British Columbia. The tour then moved on through the United States with two of the concerts taking place in Hawaii.[4][5]

The North American leg of the tour came to a close with five concerts in Canada. Elton played a total of twelve concerts in Canada over the course of the 2011 tour.[6]

The tour moved onto Europe after the United States leg. The tour began in Cardiff, Wales.[7] Due to high demand for tickets a second concert was added.[8] The summer European leg of the tour came to a close in Hertfordshire, England with a performance at Magic Summer Live.[9]

Elton and the band returned to Europe in November for six concerts in mainly taking place in Eastern Europe. This included Elton's first concert in Slovenia, which was originally planned to take place in July 2011 but was rescheduled.[10]

Shortly after the European Elton and the band will briefly performed in Asia. Both of them were his debut performances in those countries. He will in Indonesia and Malaysia for the first time.

Elton and the band then traveled to Australasia. Elton performed his first concert in Dunedin, New Zealand. Also this was the first concert that took place at the venue.[11][12] Elton and the band will then go on to perform their 15th tour of Australia in November and December 2011.[13]

The tour was extended once again into 2012. The first concert of the 2012 was announced on 28 September 2011 via eltonjohn.com. The concert will take place at B2net Stadium in Chesterfield.[14][15][16][17] More European shows in Germany were announced on 9 November 2011.[18]

It was announced via eltonjohn.com on 26 October 2011: "Elton and the band will return to Honolulu's Blaisdell Arena on Friday, January 6, 2012, at 8pm, performing their Greatest Hits Live concert."[19][20][21] A second date at the venue was announced due to high ticket demand.[22]

It was announced on eltonjohn.com on 7 November 2011 that Elton would perform his first ever concert in Peru on 1 February 2012.[23] Elton was supposed to perform a concert at the Sentul International Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia on 18 November 2011 but the concert was postphoned until Elton's 2012 Asian tour[24][25][26]
