Raptors season opener bumps Elton John

CKTB - NEWS - Raptors Victory Parade

NBA Champion Toronto Raptors have announced they'll open their season October 22nd against New Orleans.  

They'll have their championship ring ceremony and banner raising before the game.    

But once again, Toronto's schedule has impacted an A-list artist who had previously booked the Scotiabank Arena. 

The Elton John concert set for October 22nd will now be moved to October 24th. 

It's the second time the Raptors have bumped a superstar.  

In June the NBA Finals caused an appearance by Oprah Winfrey to be scrapped.
