Legendary piano man Elton John has added a leg of U.S. arena shows and European dates to his Las Vegas residency and South American schedule.

The iconic performer will first visit seven major markets throughout South America in February and March before returning to the States for the March 15 tour kick-off in Birmingham, AL. Nine U.S. shows are on the books, including stops in Memphis, TN (3/16); Baton Rouge, LA (3/29); and Nashville, TN (4/5).

John returns to the stage at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace for his "Million Dollar Piano" residency in late April and continues through mid-May before heading to Europe for a 14-city trek that extends through year's end.

John will release "Voyeur," his 30th solo set, in May. Previously titled "The Diving Board," the forthcoming album was produced by T-Bone Burnett and co-written by John's longtime writing partner, Bernie Taupin.

"It's the most exciting solo record I've done in a long, long time," John said in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine last fall. "It just came flooding out. Quickest record I've ever made."

"Voyeur" marks John's first solo release since 2006's "The Captain & the Kid," which peaked at No. 18 on The Billboard 200 and at No. 6 on the U.K. Albums chart.
