Elton John and band are to play a concert at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate, 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 Event 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!
