All right you Elton John fans, it’s time to pack your bags, pre-flight, because next summer it’ll be zero hour in the pm, and you got a chance to be high as a kite by then.

The iconic singer-songwriter will be back in Denmark performing on June 15 at Mølleparken in Sønderborg in south Jutland.

With classic hits like ‘Nikita’, ‘Daniel’, ‘Your Song’, ‘Rocket Man’ and ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’, the British entertainer has been awarded a blistering 69 gold and platinum records and sold over 250 million albums.

John will be in Denmark as part of his ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’ tour, which is also the name of his newest album, the 33rd in total.

The concert will be Elton John’s only concert in Denmark in 2017 and tickets went on sale this morning at Ticketmaster.dk.

A month later, the British singer-songwriter Elvis Costello will stop by three Danish venues as part of his ‘Detour’ tour.
