The English vocalist, pianist and songwriter, Sir Elton John hardly needs an introduction as one of the most famous artists of all time. Starting his career with the incredible Bernie Taupin, together they teamed up and created a wide range of material of more than 30 albums and 300 million record sales!! An outstanding beginning to a long standing influence on the music business for Elton… having paved the way for five decades and to even to this day.
Elton John has had more than fifty Top 40 hit singles and seven US hit number ones along with so many unbelievable triumphs! Some of his wonderful tracks include the likes of; Candle in the Wind released in 1997 as a dedication to Princess Diana, the song along transformed his legacy into the mainstream with over 33 million copies sold all around globe and pushing him to the top of the US and the UK charts. Another one of his biggest hits include "Your Song" a beautiful love song, along with the dancey and upbeat "I'm Still Standing," the slow and heartfelt track "Tiny Dancer." All of which gave him the commercial success he truly deserves and gave him the starting ground to later branch out towards the Broadway music scene, hitting the West End with his work on the sensational music for The Lion King, Aida and Billy Elliot the Musical.
"John proved that he was very much still here by opening with The Bitch Is Back, and jumping atop his piano half-way through. He followed wit a string of hits including Bennie and the Jets, Philadelphia Freedom, Tiny Dancer and Yellow Brick Road. It would be churlish to knock his technical prowess or enthusiasm: John was in good voice, although one more gravelly and lower pitched than that used to record those songs several decades ago."
