TORONTO, ON – After eight years, Elton John and his band return to Toronto on February 6th
Air Canada Centre. The tour will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his
incredible five-decade career, as well as a selection of new songs from his highly-anticipated album,
The Diving Board, which was released by Capitol Records on September 24.
Elton John’s band includes Davey Johnstone on guitar, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on
percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.
"We are thrilled to welcome Sir Elton John back to Toronto and Air Canada Centre. His connection
with the City of Toronto and the charitable events he has hosted here have made a great impact on our
community,” said Tim Leiweke, President and CEO, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. “I have seen
him perform many times and his concerts are always incredible. Fans are in for a treat."

The Diving Board, which is produced by T Bone Burnett, features 12 new songs written by Elton and
his longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin. The new album returns Elton to the piano, bass and drums lineup
that marked the artist’s introduction to worldwide audiences more than 40 years ago. As he explains,
“I’m incredibly excited about every aspect of this album: The performances, T Bone’s production,
Bernie’s lyrics and the songs we’ve created. The Diving Board is the album I’ve been waiting to make for
decades.” The Diving Board is available now on EltonJohn.com.
