Elton John's album, Sleeping with the Past, received lukewarm reviews when the album was released in 1989.

Despite the critical judgment of the album, it became his highest-selling studio album in the United Kingdom, being certified 3× Platinum and spawned his first solo number-one hit in his home country.

The following year, John performed in Australia for the first time since the Tour De Force Tour in 1986 with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.[1] John performed twenty-one concerts in Australia and three in New Zealand. This was followed by three performances later on in the year at Etess Arena in Atlantic City.[2]
