Coffs' Elton-Mania bags extra tour date
THE enormous community enthusiasm and ticket demand that greeted the announcement that Coffs Harbour will host Sir Elton John next February has seen the city win a second show on his 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' Tour.
Promoters Chugg Entertainment have today announced that the global superstar will play two shows at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium on February 25 and 26, 2020.
"I was just coming down from the excitement of finding out that Elton John was coming to Coffs when I heard about the second date," said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.
"What really thrilled me was finding out that the huge delight and excitement shown by the whole community on finding out that he was coming to town was the real clincher for us getting the second show. Coffs Harbour you are amazing!"
Daniel Heather, Council's Section Leader for Stadium and Major Events, said the Tour is going to be a massive opportunity for the city.
"Our aim is to create a week-long celebration around the shows with the help of the business and wider community, plus related activities and promotions in the months leading up to Elton's concerts. By working together, we can ensure that there is a fun-filled program of activities spread across the week, and in the lead-up, so that visitors with tickets for the shows will plan to stay longer on the Coffs Coast.
"So we're encouraging local businesses and organisations with brilliant and fun ideas to get in touch with Council so that we can create a really attractive package for the many thousands of visitors we're expecting."
