Elton John is Coming to Lincoln!3rd May 2016
It’s not everyday that an international superstar sets foot in our wonderful little city, and you don’t get much bigger than Elton John! On Friday 10th June, the Rocket Man himself will be performing at the Lincoln Showground, which is one of only six UK shows he will be performing this year.
Elton will be accompanied by his backing band, which features world renowned session musicians Davey Johnstone (guitar), Matt Missonette (bass), John Mahon (percussion), Nigel Olsson (drums) and Kim Bullard (keyboards). The man himself has even expressed his excitement for the show, stating that it feels like a homecoming gig (his life-long writing partner Bernie Taupin, grew up in the area.)
With such a long and fruitful career spanning six decades, it would be impossible to guess which songs will be played. However, Elton’s management has confirmed that it will feature a mixture of classic hits and selected tracks from his latest album, Wonderful Crazy Night.
The Support Act
Northern Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance has been confirmed as the support act for the tour. This blossoming talent was one of the first signings on Ed Sheeran’s Gingerbread Man Records. His breakthrough came in 2013 after the release of his second album, Joy Of Nothing. He has since gone on to become known for his uplifting songwriting style.
The Lincolnshire Showground is the largest venue in the city that hosts a diverse array of events throughout the year. For over 125 years it has been the epicentre of the area, providing a central hub for the community. Along with live music, it hosts festivals, livestock events, vehicle shows and rallies. Other upcoming events throughout 2016 include: The Lincolnshire County Flower Show (June 4th), The Lincolnshire Show (June 22nd) and The Lincolnshire Fireworks (November 4th).
