On Wednesday, Jan. 24, Sir Elton John announced his final tour, a three-year trek around the globe encompassing over 300 stops — including one at Detroit's Little Caesars Arena.
Now, the prolific "Rocket Man" singer is adding a second date to his stay in Detroit. He'll be in town on Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13, giving us one last chance to see hits like "Your Song," "Tiny Dancer," and "Candle in the Wind" performed live.

Tickets for both shows go on sale to the public on Friday, Feb. 2 at 10 a.m. If you're an American Express cardholder you can purchase pre-sale tickets now through Monday, Jan. 29 at 10 p.m.

Ticketmaster verified fans can purchase pre-sale tickets starting Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 10 a.m. through Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 10 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased through or by calling 845-745-3000.
