Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as Sir Elton John does both! Close your eyes and you won’t believe your ears, open your eyes and you won’t believe them either! You simply won’t find a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.
Rapidly established as the foremost Elton John tribute act in the UK, ‘Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band’ present an uncannily accurate reproduction of the classic live shows of one of pop music’s most successful and best-loved artists - performances that also often feature some of Elton’s actual costumes, bought from his ‘Out the Closet’ sales!
The band is able to draw on this amazing catalogue of hits to create a dynamic and powerful live celebration of Elton’s music. Featuring classics like ‘Candle in the Wind’, ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’, ‘I’m Still Standing’, ‘The Bitch is Back’ and ‘Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting’ - as well as other live favourites, the band creates a truly spectacular and professional show - The challenge is often not what to play, but what to leave out!
“Blimey, he’s got it down, band are great too. How are his tantrums?”
