Elton John: Singer and composer, five-time Grammy winner and recipient of the coveted Grammy Legend Award in 2001. He has sold over 250 million records worldwide, and is also the man behind the best selling single of all time. That song was ‘Candle in the Wind’ and the man in question is of course, Elton John. Right here at Eventful is where you'll find all the latest news on Elton John tour dates 2011, including those much-sought after Elton John Las Vegas shows which will mark the beginning of the star's three-year residency at the famous Colosseum at Caesar's Palace.

Known for the electrifying performances, iconic songs and the flawless vocal prowess of the man himself, Elton John tour dates are undoubtedly some of the most eagerly anticipated events on music calendars the world over. Indeed, the most recent Elton John concert schedule which is currently in motion, sees Elton John tour dates taking place everywhere from the U.K, U.S. and Ireland, to Canada, mainland Europe and New Zealand.

Music is in his blood. He began playing piano at the age of three, and at just 11 years old, Elton John won a junior scholarship to the prestigious Royal Academy of Music. However, from there, the journey to the top of the charts was neither quick, nor easy. Before the sold out Elton John tour dates of today were but a glimmer in his eye, the star honed his craft and paid his dues, singing in a choir, securing weekly piano / singing gigs in local pubs, and exploring the group and band scene with various other musicians. Indeed, it was from Elton Dean and Long John Baldry - the saxophonist and frontman of ‘Bluesology’ (Elton John’s first band) – that the now legendary star took his stage name.

Elton John first met long-time songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin in 1967 after they both responded to a talent-seeking advert in the New Musical Express. At this point in time, the two have collaborated on over 30 albums.

When the megastar isn’t devoting all his time and energy to those Elton John tour dates, he is a fierce supporter of AIDS research, having lost many of his own friends to the disease. In 1992, Elton John established his own charity, the Elton John Aids Foundation which now stands today as one of the world’s leading non-profit HIV/AIDS organizations working to promote HIV prevention, as well as providing support for HIV/AIDS sufferers. Elton John is also passionately involved in efforts to rid society of the stigma attached to the disease, as well as the discrimination so often directed towards HIV/AIDS sufferers.

Miranda Lambert: After garnering attention on the reality competition series, "Nashville Star," Miranda Lambert has proved that she has the chops to earn the title of Female Vocalist two years in a row by the Academy of Country Music. With songs like "Kerosene" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," Lambert has combined attitude and sass with her carefully crafted lyrics and polished playing style. Country's reigning queen is currently on tour, Miranda Lambert tour dates are booked at over two dozen shows this spring and summer 2011.

This native Texan was raised by her private investigator parents in rural Lindale, Texas. Her father taught her about guns, hunting, and Garth Brooks and Lambert soon developed an interest in performing country music. She started singing early on, with her dad on guitar, and by sixteen she landed the opportunity to record music in Nashville but soon returned after her disenchantment with the manufactured sound that they wanted her to produce. Lambert finished high school and became lead singer of the local band at the Reo Palm Isle Ballroom. Lambert got her chance to shine as a solo star on the USA Networks television show, "Nashville Star," where she finished in third place and inked a deal with Epic Records.

Staying true to her passion for authentic country music, she co-wrote eleven of the final twelve cuts on her debut album, "Kerosene." Of her songwriting, Lambert stated, "I mean every word I say in every lyric of every song" and "if you're into honesty, I have the records for you!" Her heartfelt lyrics and her genuine personalty translated into country superstardom for the young singer. Her debut produced four top 40 singles and was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA. Miranda Lambert tour dates were scheduled in the opening slot for country superstars Dierks Bentley and Toby Keith on their respective national tours.

She returned to the studio in 2007 to record her sophomore effort, the aptly titled "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," which yielded the domestic abuse inspired single, "Gunpowder and Lead." The album was also certified platinum and it earned Lambert the award for Album of the Year at the 2008 ACM Awards. Lambert achieved critical and commercial success early on, however, she continues to rack up career highlights and acclaim.

Lamber returned to the studio in 2009 to record her third release, "Revolution," once again contributing her writing abilities to the majority of the tracks. The singles, "White Liar," and "The House That Built Me," garnered her critical acclaim. The 2009 Miranda Lambert concert schedule included her first headlining tour, "Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars," which had scheduled dates at over 22 cities. While on tour it was announced that she was nominated for a record setting 9 CMA awards at the 2010 ceremony where she earned awards for Female Vocalist and Album of the Year. The critical acclaim only continued when she was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Female Country vocal performance for the "House that Built Me," at the February, 2011 ceremony.

Following her huge wins at the ACM and Grammy Awards in 2011, Lambert will hit the studio and the road this spring. Miranda Lambert tour dates for her "Revolution" outing have her on the road throughout the spring and summer. Make sure you catch Lambert's fiery performances.

John Legend: Not only has nine time Grammy Award-winner John Legend achieved astounding solo success, he's also responsible for hits by some of the biggest names in rap, hip hop, and R&B. He is known for his old school approach to R&B, which showcases his velvety vocals and melodic beats. John Legend's tour dates have become popular amongst jazz and R&B fans, and also attract a wider audience of music lovers.

While attending the University of Pennsylvania, John Legend was the president of a co-ed jazz and pop a cappella group called Counterparts, which began to cultivate John's personal sound. Also while attending college, he was introduced to Lauryn Hill who asked him to play piano on a song from her album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, titled "Everything is Everything".

In 2001, John Legend was introduced to a record producer that was trying to become a solo artist by the name of Kanye West, and John began singing backup vocals for him. He was eventually signed to West's GOOD Music label in 2003 and began singing backup for artists like Alicia Keys and Jay-Z, in the studio and on tour dates. It was at this time that John Stephens adopted the stage name "Legend," born from a reference to John's classic style by poet J. Ivy. John Legend's debut album, Get Lifted, was released in late 2004 and was instantly a success. It debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 and the single "Ordinary People" shot to #1 on the singles charts.

John Legend's follow-up album, Once Again, was released in 2006 with some production assistance from Kanye West and Will.I.Am. The album nearly achieved the same success as his previous one, reaching #3 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts, eventually going platinum. Bolstered by the success of the previous two albums, Legend attempted to experiment with the range of styles without straying too far from his signature style. The result was the 2008 album, Evolver, which has become one of the most popular among John Legend's fans. In 2010, John conceived another musical undertaking when he recorded a collaboration album, Wake Up!, with The Roots, who shared Legend's interest in a classic R&B style.

Miley Cyrus: Miley Cyrus is a singer/actress and a brand name. The starlet shot to fame on the hit Disney show "Hannah Montana", which not only featured her acting chops, but was her vehicle to becoming one of the highest selling singers of the 2000s. With her "Hannah Montana" career behind her, the aspiring star has focused intensely on her music career.

The Nashville native was the first born of country superstar Billy Ray Cyrus who scored a hit with "Achy Breaky Heart" in 1992. The close relationship between father and daughter proved to be a lucrative endeavor. Miley was cast as the lead in "Hannah Montana" and Billy Ray was subsequently cast as her father.

It featured the top ten single "See You Again", and launched Cyrus as a legitimate solo artist. Miley Cyrus' concert schedule included her first headlining Best of Both Worlds Tour, which featured the Jonas Brothers. Miley Cyrus tour dates were the hottest shows on the concert calendar, with some tickets fetching up to $2500 on the streets. A movie version of the tour was released in 2008 and it's accompanying soundtrack hit #3 on the Billboard 200.

Cyrus returned to the studio in 2008 to record her sophomore album, Breakout, which became another #1 on the Billboard 200 for Cyrus. It featured her writing skills and an edgier vocal style that attempted to shed away her teen-pop image. That year, Cyrus also lent her voice to the animated film Bolt. She recorded and co-wrote the film's theme-song "I Thought I Lost You", which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. Cyrus returned to the big screen with the Hanna Montana Movie in 2009. The film featured the song "The Climb" which became an Adult Contemporary hit. Cyrus also filmed the movie The Last Song and released her biggest single to date "Party In The U.S.A.". The single was off the EP The Time of Our Lives and sold over 4.5 million digital singles becoming one of the highest selling singles in music history, and the biggest of her young career.

After Miley Cyrus wrapped up the "Hannah Montana" series, she released Can't Be Tamed which promoted her burgeoning adult image. Her stage personality has become even further developed lately, thanks to appearances at the 2013 VMAs, a new style complete with blonde pixie hair and a racy music video for Wrecking Ball.
