A symphonic concert celebrating 50 years of music making by multi-award winning Elton John, the singer, pianist and composer.
Some tunes are forever, and over 50 years after Your Song first topped the UK singles charts, the music of Sir Elton John has become the soundtrack to all our memories. From Tiny Dancer to Candle in the Wind, Circle of Life to Pinball Wizard and many, many more, the BSO and a team of top West End vocalists present a spectacular symphonic tribute to pop’s original Rocket Man. My gift is my song, and this one’s for you…
In October 1970, Elton John released Your Song written with his long-time collaborator Bernie Taupin. It has since been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. He has sold more than 300 million records, had more than 50 Top 40 hits, a winner of 5 Grammy Awards, 5 Brit Awards, and is an Academy, Golden Globe and Tony Award winner.
Presented in association with GRB Concerts.
