It is official: Elton John is coming to Shreveport-Bossier this spring.

The concert is scheduled for March 22 at Bossier City's CenturyLink Center. John's 2014 tour coincides with the release of his latest album 'The Diving Board,' which was released this past fall. The album features twelve new songs from John and longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin.

John played the grand opening of the CenturyLink Center back in 2000. He played to a sold-out crowd that night. He later cancelled a return trip to the venue. But he is on the way back!! Tickets go on sale Friday, January 17 at 10 a.m. The show is expected to be a sellout.
