Elton John Fan Reviews
Elton John Concert Information ContinuedElton John is a pop/rock singer, composer, and pianist, and is one of the most successful solo artists in popular music history. Though best-known in contemporary times for his successful 1997 re-release of "Candle In The Wind", his recording and performing career has spanned over four decades. He still actively tours and composes music for many Broadway productions.
His face-to-face tours with fellow pianist Billy Joel have been a fan favourite throughout the world since the mid-1990s. Elton John also has a multi-year contract to perform at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. The show, entitled The Red Piano, is a multimedia concert featuring massive props and video montages created by David LaChapelle.
In September 1997, the lyrics of "Candle in the Wind" were altered for a special version mourning the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Elton John performed it at her funeral in Westminster Abbey. A recorded version, "Candle in the Wind 1997", then became the fastest selling single of all time, eventually going on to sell over 30 million copies worldwide. John would later win the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for the single.
Elton John was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II on 24 February 1998, granting him the title of "Sir".
On 2 July 2005, John performed at the Live 8 concert at Hyde Park in London. Here he sang "The Bitch is Back", "Saturday Night is Alright for Fighting" and lastly, T-Rex's "Children of the Revolution" with Babyshambles' frontman, Pete Doherty. Elton John is currently sandwiching a two-year world tour, some venues of which are new to him, with his regular appearances at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.
