On Saturday 15 July 2017 Sir Elton John and his band are guesting at the Klagenfurt Wörthersee Stadion for the first time as part of their international worldwide “Wonderful Crazy Night Tour”. Start time: 20.00.

Fans can look forward to a firework display of hit singles and album classics from the past 5 decades, plus a selection of songs from his 33rd studio album “Wonderful Crazy Night”; this concert is an absolute MUST for all fans of this 70-year-old exceptional artist, whether they are young or just young at heart. An event not to be missed…. With Elton John at the piano, the Elton John Band will be providing outstanding support, in the form of drummer Nigel Olsson (who played drums in the very first three-man Elton John Band), Davey Johnstone on guitar (who joined Elton for the first time in 1971 and a year later became a fulltime member of the band), Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion and Kim Bullard on keyboards.

With constant demand worldwide for Elton John’s spectacular stage shows, no one could doubt that he deserves to be named in the same breath as the greats in the music industry. The much-admired Elton has made over 4,000 appearances in 80 countries since he began his career – making him a true world star.

He is one of the best-selling solo artists of all times, having achieved 38 gold and 31 multi-platinum albums, 58 Billboard Top 40 singles in the United States, and sold more than 250 million records worldwide. He also still holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time with more than 33 million copies of “Candle in The Wind 1997”. He has also held the most listings in Billboard's Adult Contemporary Chart, where his single “A Good Heart” (from Wonderful Crazy Night) was listed at No. 72.

He has composed music for film and stage, including the successful productions Billy Elliot: The Musical, Elton John and Tim Rice`s Aida, or The Lion King, one of the most successful film and musical productions of all times. Elton John has received countless awards and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

In summer 2017, on 15 July at the Klagenfurt Wörthersee Stadion we will be celebrating a “Wonderful Crazy Night” with Elton John and his band! We are looking forward to it!
