Sir Elton John started his All the Hits Australian tour with a concert at the Hunter Valley on Dec. 5. He performed songs from his 1973 album “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.”

He rocked the stage belting out “Bennie and The Jets," “I’m Still Standing," “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” and “Candle In The Wind” from the album “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” Fans attending the concert were seen dancing to the songs “Saturday Night's Alright," “The Bitch Is Back” and “Crocodile Rock.”

The five-city tour -- Brisbane, Melbourne, Geelong, Adelaide and Sydney -- ends with a concert at Hordern Pavilion, which is set to close on Dec. 19. "I thought that since we are closing the Entertainment Centre in Sydney,” Sir Elton said to Chugg Entertainment. “It would be only right to add the Hordern Pavilion to the 2015 December schedule.”

Sir Elton holds the record of doing 179 concerts in Australia, including perfoming 45 shows at the Qantas Credit Union Arena, Sydney Entertainment Centre.

“Some of my most memorable concerts have taken place in venues all across the continent [Australia],” Sir Elton said. “Australia has been one of my favorite countries to tour in ever since my first visit there at the start of my world-wide career in 1971."

He is set to perform at Rod Laver Arena on Dec. 11, A Day On The Green, Mt Duneed Estate on Dec. 12, Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Dec. 15 and Qantas Credit Union Arena, Sydney on Dec. 19.

Elton has won five Grammys, a Grammy Legend award, a Tony, an Oscar, and he has been inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriters Hall of Fame.
