Elton John


Now fans in Yorkshire can look forward to what will be one of the music events of the year, as Elton John announces a show at Leeds First Direct Arena on 8th June, as part of his worldwide Wonderful Crazy Night Tour. Taking to the stage, Elton will perform songs from his latest studio album ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’, as well as his most-loved hits from his stellar career.

The show will be Elton’s 12th in Leeds - his first being on February 5th 1971 at Leeds University and his last on September 4th, 2013 where he played at the official opening show of the Leeds First Direct Arena. The Yorkshire Evening Press were there that night along with a capacity crowd and rightly acknowledged that “Sir Elton is the last of that great breed of true British working musical legend”.

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.
