Elton John and his band return to Corpus Christi, for one performance at the American Bank Center on Saturday, October 8th at 8 pm as part of an eight-city concert tour that will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career, as well as selected tracks from his latest release Wonderful Crazy Night.

"The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family and less time touring." Said Elton. "I am all too aware of how precious the time ahead is. My sons are growing up so quickly. Their early years are just flying by and I want to be with them.
Elton John's band features Nigel Olsson (part of Elton's original three-piece band) on drums, Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band a year later) on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards and Matt Bissonette on bass.
One of the most successful artists on the road today, Elton and his band perform a concert you will never forget: the entire audience singing along to much-loved classic songs such as "Your Song", "Rocket Man", "Bennie and the Jets", "Philadelphia Freedom", "Crocodile Rock", "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me", and many more.
"Elton John returning to Corpus Christi is a monumental event for South Texas!" said Jim Salamenta, general manager for American Bank Center. "In 2010, Elton made our venue come alive with excitement and put on the best show you could possibly ask for. This will be the concert of the year!"
