Elton John adds second Staples Center gig to his ‘All the Hits’ tour

Apparently a single night isn’t enough to contain all of Elton John’s hits. The singer, who’s scheduled to appear at Staples Center on Oct. 4 as part of his “All the Hits” tour, has added a second night after the first quickly hit capacity.

Appearing in Los Angeles with his band for his first concerts in 13 years, John will stick around to perform on Oct. 5 as well during his 10-date tour. 

The extra L.A. show stands to reason, as the artist and the city have had a long and fruitful relationship over the last four decades. John first broke through during early performances at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, and a mere five years later he was gigging Dodger Stadium in a sequined baseball uniform. 

The rest is history, one that he’ll celebrate as part of “All the Hits,” which will feature the pianist and band rolling through songs from his 35 gold and 25 platinum records.


Tickets for the Oct. 5 concert go on sale to the public Monday, June 23 at 10 a.m. PDT, and are available through
