Sir Elton John to Return to Singapore in November

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 31 August 2011

Sir Elton John and his highly acclaimed band are returning to Singapore.

 It has been more than three years since Elton John and Band last visited Singapore. The Rocket Man Tour was a very special night, with the Singapore Indoor Stadium completely sold out and nine thousand fans up on their feet for an unforgettable, one-night-only, three-hour rock n roll extravaganza.

For Elton will once again be joined on the road by his long-time band; Davey Johnstone, Nigel Olsson, Robert Birch, Jeffrey Bullard and John Mahon, all dedicated and superbly talented musicians who have been playing alongside the piano man for many years.

 Another highlight for 2011 is the four backing singers, which include the incredible Rose Stone (Sly and The Family Stone) together with Lisa Banks, Ta Ta Vega and Alice Witherspoon. Their stunning harmonies will light up every corner of the stadium on 20 November 2011.

This will be the first time that 2CELLOS will join the ensemble. The young Croatian duo of Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser recently took YouTube by storm, quickly landing a recording deal with Sony Music.

Saturday Nights Alright (for Fighting), Rocketman, Levon and Your Song are just a handful of hits those that attend can look forward to hearing.

Eltons most recent studio album The Union, released by Universal Music in October 2010 was recorded with Eltons long-time musical idol and world-renowned pianist and songwriter, Leon Russell. The Union sees the duo and a glittering array of guests get back to the nitty-gritty of what they love about rock n roll. For Elton, working with Russell had been a life-long ambition. When I started, he was my idol, mentor and everything I wanted to be as a song-writer, Elton said. In the last third of my life, I want to make records that I really want to make.
