ELTON JOHN RETURNS FOR SPRING NORTH AMERICAN TOUR, SUPPORTS ALBUM 'THE ONE,' HIT SINGLE 'SIMPLE LIFE'; TOUR SPONSORED BY HARD ROCK CAFE

 WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Elton John returns to North America on April 9 to begin a four-week tour in Washington at the Capitol Centre. The tour will close on May 8 in Atlanta with a special concert at the Omni and party at the Hard Rock Cafe to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
 The Elton John Spring '93 Tour is part of a world tour which began in 1992 with the release of John's current MCA album "The One." The album has already been certified platinum and has generated two hit singles, "The One" and "The Last Song." The current hit single, "Simple Life," was released in support of the tour.
 The Hard Rock Cafe, contributing to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, will be the sponsor of the North American Tour. In addition, Hard Rock Cafe will create special events in Washington, Boston, Orlando, Fla., and Miami to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
 The internationally known restaurant has a long history of sponsoring major music industry causes that began with Live Aid and has included John Lennon's Spirit Foundation, The Freddie Mercury Phoenix Trust and Earth Communications Office. The tour sponsorship is an unusual first for the Hard Rock Cafe but one uniquely suited to the philanthropic goal of the tour and the philosophy of the Hard Rock.
