Sir Elton John in Durban next week

2008-01-11 00:00

British singer and pianist Sir Elton John arrives in Durban next week and organisers have re-configured the field at the Absa Stadium to be fully seated.

Sir Elton John, whose latest album Rocket Man – The Definitive Hits snapped up the number two spot on the charts, has sold more than 250 million albums worldwide, and has over 50 Top 40 hits under his belt, from a career spanning close to half a century.

He is one of the most successful musicians of all time, was knighted by the Queen of England, and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Performing some of the all-time favourite hits, including Rocket Man, Candle In The Wind, Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me, Crocodile Rock, I’m Still Standing and Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word among countless others, the legendary Grammy-winning superstar and his band will be a great way to start the new year.

The Durban show starts at 8 pm at the Absa Stadium on January 16.
