Newcastle looks ahead to Pop Icon Elton John following Rave Reviews for his Summer Shows

Elton JohnThis summer has seen fans from across the UK flock to see Elton John in concert. From Longleat to Leicester, Edinburgh to Exeter, the shows have been a certified hit! The Guardian exclaimed how the Meadowbanks Stadium show was “a hit parade of peerless pomp”, with the Herald observing “the maestro’s unbridled raison d’etre of showbiz classicist…sits somewhere between Liberace and Mozart”.

It was no different at the Lincolnshire Showground, where The Lincolnshire Echo simply declared, “when Sir Elton John came to Lincoln, Lincoln had one wonderful, crazy night”. In Liverpool, the Echo observed, “every song was note perfect, packed with the kind of energy that belies his years”

Now fans can look forward to another high octane show at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on December 3rd, as part of his worldwide Wonderful Crazy Tour, continuing a relationship with the city that started in 1971 at the City Hall as a 3-piece band.

The show in December will be Elton’s first on Tyneside since 2014, and will see him performing songs from his brand new album ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’, which was released earlier this year, as well as his most-loved hits.

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”.

Having performed at several of the world’s most recognisable venues – including a pair of residencies at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Elton John continues to be one of this country’s biggest pop-culture exports, and as such, welcoming him to Newcastle on December 3rd will be a fantastic opportunity.
