|Elton John Live : 15 Dec 2016|
There aren’t many artists who have sold more than 300 million records worldwide, but Elton John is one of these superstar legends.
With more than 4,000 concerts under his belt, spread across five decades, the Rocket Man singer is one of the biggest artists of all time. A whopping 38 gold, 27 platinum albums and multi-platinum albums proves it. And he still holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time, Candle in the Wind.
Part of the magic of his performances is seeing him sit alone at his piano, accompanying himself and improvising to his own score.
Aiming to please the audience, Elton always provides a selection of his great hits as well as some of the lesser known tracks from his older albums for some variation, something that usually pleases the hungry crowd.
50 years of performances, and Elton John’s stamina remains incredibly impressive.
Get your hands on these tickets and you will not know when the hours fly by!
