Yes, you got it right. Sir Elton John will be having a concert here in the Philippines at the Big Dome on December 8, 2012. When I learned about this, I’m super excited. First time ever that he will be here. 🙂
I remember several Disney songs that was from him which were really really good. And that Candle in the Wind is super awesome.
Only one artist can have the biggest selling single of all time, and since 1997 Elton has held that record. Candle in the Wind 1997, Elton and Bernie’s heartbreaking tribute to the late Diana, Princess of Wales, has sold over 37,000,000 copies, and raised millions for the princess’s charities. In 1998 Elton received a knighthood from HM Queen Elizabeth II for “services to music and charitable services” and became Sir Elton Hercules John, CBE.
And aside from that, The Rocketman is coming!! Whoah! It’ll be the most amazing event I will ever attend if i will be able to hear him sing his Rocketman. i just hope my budget will allow me to buy tickets. Haha!!
Another thing that I love about Elton John is that remains committed to his music and to touring, becoming more, rather than less, busy as time passes. In 2011, as well as touring in Europe, Australia and North America both solo and with his band, Elton returned to The Colosseum, Caesars Palace, Las Vegas with his all-new show, The Million Dollar Piano. This production, which received fantastic reviews, is set to run for at least three years. In 2012 he returned to the recording studio with producer T Bone Burnett, and toured North, Central and South America, before heading to Europe. His summer tour of Europe included an unforgettable appearance at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace.
This concert will surely attract music lovers of all ages even throughout ASEAN region. Which will become one of the major tourism event of the year 2012.
