The management team of music superstar, Elton John, announced Tuesday his much anticipated Sofia concert is rescheduled for June 13.

The previously announced date was June 6. The location remains the same – the Sofia “Locomotive” Stadium while the change is imposed by logistic issues, the Bulgarian organizers of the concert, Sofia Music Enterprise inform, cited by the news agency BGNES.

BGNES further report the new date is going to be published around 8 pm Tuesday on the musician's official site The tickets for the June 6 concert will be honored and do not need to be reissued.

The concert is bound to be one of the key musical events in Bulgaria, ranking alongside the recent record-breaking Sofia appearance of Madonna last summer. The spectacular design of the show’s setting means that the capacity of the stadium will be limited to 20 000 seats.

The interest has been huge so far, but the organizers inform there is a limited quantity still available for sale with prices ranging between BGN 60 and 150 depending on the type of seat.

Sir Elton John is universally recognized as one of the most successful musicians, a brilliant British composer, writer of lyrics and superb performer, who has made a huge contribution to world music.

In his 40-year career, he has sold over 200 million recordings, which places him among the most successful musical artists of all times.

His song, "Candle in the Wind", adapted to honor the death of Princess Diana, sold over 37 million copies, making it one of the best-selling singles ever.

He also has over 50 hits in the Top 40, including seven consecutive Number Ones in the US album charts. He has received countless awards, including 5 Grammys.
