SIR ELTON JOHN FOR SA! (article first published : 2007-07-30)

Big Concerts, 94.7 Highveld Stereo, 94.5 Kfm and East Coast Radio have announced that legendary singer, songwriter and entertainer, Elton John, has confirmed dates for his first South African tour. The critically acclaimed superstar will appear at Durban's ABSA Stadium on January 16, 2008, having performed in Cape Town on January 13 and before moving on to Johannesburg on January 18.

"Elton John is timeless, and core artist for both 94.7 and 94.5. He has topped our charts over the years with a string of No.1 hits, and we are proud to be associated with his upcoming SA tour," commented Dex de Bruin, Marketing Manager for the Primedia Broadcasting Group.

Naveen Singh, East Coast Radio's Programming Manager, added "Elton John is a much-loved artist and we are excited to present a star of such magnitude the first time on the East Coast.".

A legend in his lifetime, a great humanitarian, a multiple Grammy winner, a flamboyant superstar and a hero of our times, Sir Elton John is the most enduringly successful singer/songwriter of his generation. His current shows, including a run at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, have already grossed over $60 million in ticket sales, and have received rave reviews. The show reflects his peerless musicianship, and audiences are treated to his phenomenal back catalogue of hits such as Rocket Man, Candle In The Wind, Your Song, Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me, Crocodile Rock, The Bitch is Back, I'm Still Standing, Saturday Night, Bennie & The Jets and Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word.

Celebrating over 40 years of touring, Elton's musical life is marked by a startling resilience, openness and refusal to let his talent simmer. Tickets priced from R200 (excluding booking fees) available from Computicket on 083 915 8000 or at www.computicket.com
