The Rocket Man is coming to Brighton’s Theatre Royal, a tribute to the incredible, multi-Grammy award-winning musical legend, Sir Elton John. This musical tour will follow Elton John’s rise to fame, through all his greatest and most famous hits, as he became one of the best-selling artists of all time.
The show truly reflects Elton’s flamboyant style, and will not fail to enchant audiences with breath-taking vocal performances and incredible piano playing. Fabulous costumes and a sparkling light show tie everything together, and a talented band and backing vocals provide wonderful support.
Over his five decades of performance Elton John has sold over 300 million records. Incredibly, he has had over fifty Top 40 hits, including seven consecutive No. 1 US albums and a whopping 58 Billboard Top 40 singles. “Candle in the Wind 1997” was adapted as a dedication to Princess Diana after her death, selling over 33 million copies worldwide. This remains the best-selling single in the history of the UK and US singles charts.
You can expect hits such as Crocodile Rock, Philadelphia Freedom, Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting, Are You Ready for Love, I’m Still Standing, I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues, Tiny Dancer, Your Song and of course Rocket Man.
