UPDATE: Ticket prices will be $37-$147.

It won’t be a Saturday, but Friday night’s alright for another Elton John concert in the Twin Cities. The knighted British piano-rock legend will return to Xcel Energy Center on Nov. 22 as part of his tour behind a new T Bone Burnett-produced album, “The Diving Board,” due out Sept. 24.

Tickets for the St. Paul show go on sale next Monday, Sept. 16, through Ticketmaster and the arena box office. Sir Elton and tour promoter Live Nation have yet to announce ticket prices. Because money is superfluous to all his affluent fans anyway, right? Right?!

Last seen in town with his partner-in-ivories Billy Joel at the X in 2009, the 66-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has been spending a lot of his time lately performing in Las Vegas, where his aptly named “Million Dollar Piano” show continues with shows this month and next at Caesar’s Palace. No opening act is named for the Xcel Center date.
