The date was announced today by promoter Phil Sprey of Capital C: Concerts.
The concert, the first international act attracted to the stadium, will be a month after the Rugby World Cup ends.
Mr Sprey said the timing was ideal because the cup would be finished, the Christmas party season would be starting and few major artists were scheduled about that time.
He expected the timing to help encourage many visitors from outside Dunedin.
"Many ex-pat Dunedinites have been in touch with us and venue management over the last few weeks," he said.
It would be Sir Elton's first South Island concert for 20 years.
Booking information, including prices, is due to be announced next week.
Sir Elton and his partner, David Furnish, became parents of a son born to a surrogate on Christmas Day.
