“The Bitch Is Back, John reclaims the night as his own….. Very much the master of ceremonies…. He dives into the feisty honky-tonk of his early career…. His band and its ebullient gospel-schooled backing singers whip up a southern soul fervour….” The Guardian
Undoubtedly one of the biggest artists in the world, Elton John and his band will bring their unforgettable live show to Falkirk for one special night next summer.
The concert will take place at The Falkirk Stadium, home of Falkirk Football Club on Sunday 10 June 2012. The fully reserved seated concert will give thousands of fans the opportunity to dance and sing along to his much-loved songs.
Elton John said:
“My first Scottish gigs were in 1971 – forty years ago! – when I played Stirling University, Strathclyde University and Dunfermline Kinema. But I’ve never played Falkirk until now and it’s high time I did - I’m really looking forward to playing at the Stadium. And I hope Falkirk FC soon makes it back into the Scottish Premier League!
This October I played my 3000th live concert, and I am still as excited about playing live as I was when my career began – in fact probably more so. In recent years I have tried to include new venues, visiting towns and even countries where I’ve never played before. There is a great buzz when the news is announced, and the band and I have certainly found that these audiences really appreciate us coming to their home town. So, Falkirk, I’ll see you in June and we’ll have a ball!”
As one of the greatest and most successful live artists, his spectacular stage shows continue to leave the competition standing! Elton will perform over two hours of hits from an incredible back catalogue, including such classics as ‘Bennie and The Jets’, ‘Crocodile Rock’ and ‘Your Song’.
