Elton John and his band will return to Atlanta this fall after an eight-year absence.
The sometime-Atlantan will perform at Philips Arena Nov. 16 as part of a 13-city tour featuring his parade of hits, as well as new material from his upcoming album, “The Diving Board.”
Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 13 through all Ticketmaster outlets. There is an eight-ticket limit per customer. Ticket prices have not yet been announced.
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.
John’s latest album, which arrives Sept. 24, is produced by T Bone Burnett and features a dozen new songs written by John and right-hand-man Bernie Taupin.
