Great Yorkshire Show Ground

Elton John and band are to play a concert at the in , on Bank Holiday Tuesday, 5th June 2012.

The specially created fully reserved seated outdoor concert will give thousands of fans the opportunity to dance and sing along to Elton’s much-loved songs. The concert is scheduled to finish at about 9pm, giving the audience the opportunity to get home in good time on this, the last day of the Bank Holiday weekend.

Elton, who will be the first artist ever to play the Yorkshire Centre, said:

The first time I played in Yorkshire was in August 1970 at the Yorkshire Jazz Folk and Blues Festival near Halifax. Anyone who was there will probably remember the terrible weather rather than the music! Since then I’ve played Leeds and Bradford several times, and last year Scarborough for the first time, but I’ve never played in Harrogate before. So I’m looking forward to my first summer visit to this famous English spa town, and you can expect a night of hit songs, dancing and fun – whatever the weather!

Public tickets for this fully reserved seated concert will go on sale on Friday December 2 at 10am, and can be bought online at www.theticketfactory.com or ticketmaster.co.uk or via the hotline numbers: 0844 581 1317, 0844 847 2441.

  1. Great news! But did you know you’ll be able to see Elton for free in Knaresborough on the Monday night? He’s on stage in the Castle grounds before the beacon gets lit. On a large screen but every good concert staging has one these days!
