Elton John To Tour With Joel In 2009

Rock veteran SIR ELTON JOHN is planning to head out on tour with BILLY JOEL next year (09) in a new series of concerts.
The two legends have hit the road together on a number of occasions over the years in their Face to Face shows. During the gigs, the pair often team up for duets and play one another's hits.
The pair last toured together in 2002, before John inked a deal for his residency at Las Vegas' Caesars Palace.
But the Rocket Man hitmaker is ready to hook up with Joel once again - as part of a whole host of concert dates - and has pinpointed 2009 for a new tour.
He tells GQ magazine, "I love going out and playing. I've never loved playing so much as I do now. I'm just going back to do some dates with my band, then I go off and do six dates completely on my own, and then I go back to Vegas to do a show which is completely different to anything we've done before, and then I'm going on the road again with Billy Joel again next year - so that's the fourth different thing.
"And then I may go on the road with (English musician) Ray Cooper again - so that's the fifth different thing - and then I've got an orchestral thing up my sleeve. So that's six different kinds of shows I can do. And I just really, really, really enjoy it."
