Pop legend Elton John has announced a brand new European tour for 2015, and will be playing in Glasgow’s Hydro Arena for one night in June!
Elton John, whose 1997 track ‘Candle in the Wind’ is the the biggest-selling single of all time, is one of the most successful artists of all time with global record sales of over 200 million.
The Piano Man stunned fans with his epic Bestival headline slot in 2013, and subsequent tour. Now he’ll be returning to the UK for a string of massive dates next June. Dates which just happen to be in the run up to Glastonbury…
Elton will perform over two hours of hits from an incredible back catalogue spanning over four decades which includes more than 30 Top 40 UK albums, more than 60 Top 40 UK singles and numerous no. 1 hits. The show is likely to include such classics as ‘Your Song’, ‘The Bitch is Back’, ‘Are You Ready For Love’, ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’ and ‘Daniel’.
During the show you are also likely to hear tracks from his new, critically acclaimed album ‘The Union’ with Leon Russell which entered the UK Top 40 at no. 12 and the US Billboard album charts at no. 3 and has received rave reviews.
This new Glasgow date will mark his eighth appearance in a little over a decade at the SECC, with combined ticket sales in excess of 65,000.
Elton has a tradition of introducing the hottest new acts at his live shows. In 2007, he invited Glasgow’s own Amy Macdonald to support him, and in 2009 Pearl and the Puppets were his special guests.
