Elton’s new shows include second dates added in cities like Boston; Brooklyn, New York; and Sunrise, Florida, as well as stops in new areas, such as Long Island, New York.  Tickets for the new shows go on sale to the general public February 16 at 10 a.m. local time via  American Express Card members can buy tickets starting February 8 at 10 a.m. local time.

VIP packages also go on sale February 8 at 10 a.m., and those include goodies like backstage tours, custom merchandise and on-stage photo ops with Elton’s piano.
