Elton announced that he would tour Australia with a brand-new show in 2020, Ben Elton Live, but with the unexpected hurdles of COVID-19 his tour was pushed back. As the country's restrictions continue to ease, Ben Elton - Live 2021 has added new tour dates with eight new stops across Australia. He last performed stand up in Australia in 2006 but returned to the stage with a sold out 75 date UK tour in 2019.

Tickets are available at www.margaretriverheart.com.au or alternatively, the Box Office is open from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday to purchase over the counter or by phone on (08) 9780 5294.
