An unmistakable name in the history of popular music, Elton John has done it all – and then some. From being awarded multiple Grammys and BRITs, and even an Oscar and a Tony Award, Elton has proven his universal acclaim. In addition to selling more than 250 million records worldwide, through his partnership with lyricist Tim Rice Elton wrote the music for the feature film and Broadway stage production of ‘The Lion King”.
Elton John has over 4,000 performances to his credit since launching his first tour in 1970. Having performed at several of the world’s most recognisable venues – including a pair of residencies at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Elton continues to be one of this country’s biggest pop-culture exports.
Now fans in Derby, Birmingham, Leeds and Airdrie can look forward to what will be one of the music events of 2017, as Elton John announces shows at Derby’s The 3aaa County Ground (4 June), Birmingham Genting Arena (7 June), Leeds First Direct Arena (8 June) and Airdrie Excelsior Stadium (24 June), performing songs from his latest studio album, ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’, as well as his most-loved hits.
“2017 will be my 50th year writing songs with Bernie Taupin. Our friendship remains one of the longest and most important relationships in my life. I have said many times that without meeting Bernie I would not have had the career, or fantastic life, I have had. Not by far. So my 2017 Tour, and especially the summer shows in the UK, will be dedicated to Bernie. He remains the most unique lyricist I could ever hope to work with, and a dear friend.”
