KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Wings Stadium has had trouble competing for concert dates since the opening of Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, and that may be one reason why Elton John is coming to Kalamazoo.  Wings Stadium Event Coordinator Andrea Pluta says they were approached by the promoter of the tour and asked to bid on the date, March 21st.

They had to compete with another venue to win the date. Sir Elton is playing a string of smaller dates, in cities he has never been to.  She wishes more acts would do the same.    Pluta says the reaction has been overwhelming, and they are planning for a sell out for the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.  Tickets range in price from $39 to $139 and go on sale on February 11th at 10AM. 

They expect a line at the Wings Stadium box office, but they will also be available through Ticketmaster online and on the phone.  

Listen to the interview with Andrea Pluta from Wings Stadium above.
