COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Elton John is coming to Columbus for the first time for a concert on March 16 at the Civic Center.


In a news release from the Columbus Civic Center, John says the concert, which is part of a nine-city tour, will feature his iconic hits and classic album tracks from his five-decade career.


John says the short, nine-city tour is a win-win situation for him as he enjoys more time with his family but also getting the chance to bring his music to fans.


The Grammy-winning artist has a home in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood.


Civic Center Director Ross Horner tells the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (http://goo.gl/nLzlE3 ) that ticket prices will be announced next week.


Horner says the Civic Center can hold over 8,500 people for large concerts.
