A week after hosting our private screening of Rocketman we are even more excited for next year’s live shows (didn’t think that was possible). If you’ve not see the film yet, you’re missing out… we’ve had Elton’s songs on repeat since. Cue humming Tiny Dancer whilst writing this.
Rocketman is such an incredible inspiring story about Elton John himself, we had forgotten how many great songs he’s given us… we were all trying hard not to sing out loud!
Just want to thank all those who came along with us to the private viewing, including local businesses, media, social influencers and our lucky winners as well as all the original 106 winners.
We honestly can’t wait to see his show next year, we know Elton’s farewell yellow brick road tour will be a show not to be missed! But don’t just take our word for it, see what the reviews were from his live performance in Europe:
Metro ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (five stars)
'The good news is that John is going neither quietly nor gracefully. He is dragging himself into retirement raucously and defiantly. When Elton John plays a greatest hits set, they really are hits, they really are great and they stay played.'
Daily Mail ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (five stars)
'An emotional evening, packed with heart-wrenching piano ballads and joyous rock 'n' roll songs from one of pop's greatest back catalogues... he remains an indefatigable frontman'
Daily Telegraph ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐(five stars)
'Elton John is bowing out still at the height of his powers, perhaps the greatest showman of our times.'
Let us know what you think of Rocketman, and share by tagging us! #Rocketman #PandJLive #LoveAberdeen
See you next November, we can’t wait to meet Elton’s fans! Let’s show him what an incredible crowd we are, here in the North-East!
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world… (sorry had to get a lyric in there).
