Elton John Adds Yet Another Date To Upcoming Aussie Tour

Due to tickets selling out in a matter of minutes yesterday, Sir Elton John has announced he will play a second show in Hobart during his Once In A Lifetime tour this September. 

The music legend will take to the stage twice at Derwent Entertainment Centre, with the second gig locked in for Thursday, 28 September. 

Revered Aussie promoter, Michael Chugg, said of the news, "I trusted in Tassie, I knew they'd bring it home.

"The turnout for tickets on Elton's first show was fantastic, and I'm trusting it will be just as strong for this second one. But it's really Elton we have to thank for agreeing to go again."

Tasmania wasn't the only city that sold well either, as more than 50,000 tickets for John's shows in Mackay, Cairns and Wollongong were snapped up yesterday.

Black Sabbath Final Song Together As A Band

Black Sabbath have finally reached The End. The heavy metal godfathers have played their final ever show and taken their final ever bow at the culmination of their final ever tour in their home city of Birmingham, UK.

 

OG members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler closed the curtain on their five-decade spanning career with a 15-song set of back catalogue classics, bowing out with the iconic ‘Paranoid’ off their 1970 album of the same name.

With 81 epic tour dates in total — including a handful of stops here in Australia — Sabbath would have raked in even more money than they spent on cocaine in 1972 to stuff their retirement funds with.
