Sir Elton John is a British singer-songwriter and piano player from Harrow, London.
Starting his music career in 1963, he has released 30 albums across his career, including his debut album, ‘Empty Sky’, in 1969, ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’, which was #1 in both the USA and UK charts, as well as his latest album, ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’, which came out in February 2016. Alongside his former writing partner Bernie Taupin, he has released tracks such as Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Rocket Man, Candle In The Wind and Your Song.
He has headlined his own shows and tours across the world, cutting his teeth as a pub pianist, you can catch him performing massive headline gigs and huge festival slots, always making sure fans across the globe get a chance to catch him live. In 2015 he was back again for a series of UK shows in the summer, including two Eden Sessions shows, European concerts, his Las Vegas Residency, and and an Australian tour, which was followed by his ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’ tour in 2016.
Elton John has announced he will retire from touring following a farewell tour scheduled to get underway later this year. The shows are said to span over three years - hitting the US and Europe in 2018, then the UK in June 2019. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information on Stereoboard below.
May have the date wrong, but it was Oct in L.A. and it was an amazing show. Superb, as Sir Elton always is. I will see him every time I can. Singing, playing, sound, visuals were great, the whole arena was standing, dancing and loving the show. He was gracious and chatty with the audience.
Too loud from start, piano was distorted, spoiled the spectacle for me and lots more of the audience, who showed their feelings by leaving early. Surely an artist of the stature of Sir Elton John should have sound engineers competent enough to know when volume is not a substitute for quality. Great band without doubt, lighting superb, a back catalogue of songs probably second to very few in the world. Vocals as you would expect from Sir Elton, organisation and marshalled well, but to be blasted with sound for nearly two hours, NO!!!!
The best, what else is there to say? To hear Goodbye Yellow Brick Road sang live along with other favorites was amazing! Came out of theatre with the biggest smile. Not one bad moment, Elton was so engaging from the moment he walked on the stge. Every moment is etched in my memory!
