Elton John and his band are set to return to Australia from 5 December as part of his international All The Hits Tour. The shows, announced and on sale last month, have been met with a huge response from fans across the country. Taking in performances at wineries and indoor venues from the Hunter Valley, Brisbane, Melbourne, Geelong and Adelaide, Elton will finish out the tour at the Qantas Credit Union Arena (formerly Sydney Entertainment Centre).

The tour will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career, including a selection of songs from his highly acclaimed album, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which recently celebrated its 40th anniversary with a Deluxe Edition.

Chugg Entertainment can now confirm the supports for all shows on the All The Hits Tour. Pianist and composer Tate Sheridan will open the evening for all shows on the tour, while the main supporting act will vary by show. * Fresh off his recently announced tour with Ed Sheeran, Irish troubadour, Foy Vance will provide support for all arena shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Adelaide, as well as the tour’s final stop in Sydney.

At only 21 years old, Tate Sheridan has developed a fine reputation in the Australian jazz and pop community. He has been showcasing his original work at jazz festivals across the country and has been awarded with the Merimbula JazzQuest Scholarship as well as the ANU Imad Nassir Medal for Most Outstanding Piano Performance. Tate has demonstrated a unique style that seems to captivate all who hear him.

When Irish-born Foy Vance first began writing his own music, his love for traditional music was heavily influenced by his upbringing in the American Midwest. Foy has spent a considerable amount of time traveling the world, touring with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Michael Kiwanuka and more. Foy also scored Oscar-winning short-film The Shore with David Holmes, and has had his music used in countless films and television shows over the years. A seasoned songwriter, Foy has written for and collaborated with a number of artists, including recent cuts on Ed Sheeran’s newest album, X. Foy will spend much of 2015 in studio, writing and recording the follow-up to his critically acclaimed Glassnote Records debut, Joy of Nothing.
