Promoters of Elton gig reassure Manx public they will do all they can to make it happen

Wednesday, May 18th 2011 00:00

The promoters, along with Elton John's management have stated that they will do all they can to make sure the people of the Isle of Man will not be without live music this summer.
The promoters of the Elton John gig scheduled for the 16th June have spoken to 3FM to convey the message to the Manx public that the concert will definitely still go ahead.
The spokesperson from Marshall Arts, the company putting the gig on, started by saying the cancellation of the Bay Festival will have no bearing on their event.
The venue in Nobles Park was going to be the only thing linking the two events, with the Isle of Man Bay Festival now not happening that is going to cause some logistical issues for Marshall Arts.
The promoters, along with Elton John's management have stated that they will do all they can to make sure the people of the Isle of Man will not be without live music this summer.
They're currently working with the Douglas Corporation and the Manx Government; along with many of the Island's supply companies to make sure it will go ahead.
Elton John himself has said he is looking forward to performing his first ever gig on Isle of Man soil.
Tickets will be dispatched next week.

'Set off early and expect delays' is the advice to Elton John fans making their way to the concert in Noble's Park this evening (Thursday).
Police say drivers should be prepared for congestion around the venue as thousands pour into the capital for the show.
Ticket-holders are being asked to car-share, use public transport or walk to keep routes as clear as possible.
Inspector Richard Power says officers will help control the traffic flow.

Sir Elton John to perform in Douglas tonight

One of the most iconic musicians of the last 50 years will be playing on the Isle of Man tonight.
Elton John is bringing his solo show here, the Rocketman Tickets has worldwide album sales in excess of 250 million.
Concert promoter Ben Martin said Elton wants to bring his music to the fans, and play in locations that otherwise wouldn't put on such a huge artist. 
Sir Elton said: "I have never played in the Isle of Man before, so I'm looking forward to the concert on June. Every year I play concerts all over the world, often in the most extraordinary and exotic places. I never tire of playing and coming home to play in England in the summer is always a special joy.'

Sir Elton John will also perform in Cardiff, Glasgow, Shrewsbury, Northampton and Hove.

Crowds of fans gathered to see the superstar perform a catalogue of hits including Crocodile Rock, Your Song and Candle in the Wind.
One woman had travelled from Jersey to the venue in Noble's Park to celebrate her 100th Elton John gig.
After playing for over two hours Elton returned to the stage to sign tickets, concert programmes and even a Manx flag before launching into the encore of Can You Feel the Love Tonight and Circle of Life.
Before the concert Marshall Arts Ltd, the promoters of the concert, played a message on the big screens for fans.
It read: "The lengths to which we have gone to make sure the show went ahead have been well documented in the media over the last month.
"However after many hours of hard work and additional investment we are delighted that Elton John will take to the stage.
"Finally and most importantly we would like to thank you the fans without whom we would not be here."

Elton John wows audience

Published on Friday 17 June 2011 10:29

ELTON John apologised to the 9,000-strong audience in Noble’s Park for taking 41 years to come to the island.
He didn’t fail to miss the appreciation shown by the crowd – telling them that out of his almost 3,000 performances, they were ‘one of the very best’ audiences.
And he promised not to leave it so long until he next returned.
At last night’s concert (Thursday) the megastar sang many of his greatest hits, starting with The One.
The set, lasting 2 hours 15, also included Rocket Man, Bennie and the Jets, Candle in the Wind, Your Song, Crocodile Rock, Daniel and Honky Cat.
After signing a number of signatures – and waving a Manx flag much to the audience’s delight – he sang Circle of Life and Can You Feel the Love Tonight as the encore.
