In the early spring of 1984, Elton John set out to tour Australia in promotion of Too Low for Zero.[1] Although the album was released in May 1983, this was the only live promotion the album received. Elton and the band performed three shows in New Zealand[2] before performing nineteen shows in Australia[3][4] and two shows in Hong Kong.[5]

Ticket sales were phenomenal - most of the concerts were sold out, breaking all previous records.[6]
