Elton John has just announced an Irish concert for 2017.

The singing sensation will be coming to Cork next summer, to play Live at the Marquee.

Elton, who has played a whopping 22 shows in Ireland, will return to the Emerald Isle on June 20th.

The US star is looking forward to the show, as it’ll be a way of thanking fans for their continued support over the past five decades, as he slightly pulls back from a life in the limelight to spend time with his family.

Speaking ahead of the gigs, he said, “The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family, and I am only too aware of just how precious the time ahead is.

“My sons are growing up so quickly; their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them. So these concerts will give me the chance to thank the fans who have been so faithful to me over these many decades.

“My appearance at Live at the Marquee in June will be my 4th show at that wonderful festival since July 2007. It is always a joy to play in Cork and my band and I are looking forward to enjoying what are always some of the greatest audiences on the tour.”

Tickets for the gig go on sale November 7th through Ticketmaster outlets.
