Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as Sir Elton John does both! Close your eyes and you won’t believe your ears, open your eyes and you won’t believe them either! You simply won’t nd a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.
Rapidly established as the foremost Elton John tribute act in the UK, ‘Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band’ present an uncannily accurate reproduction of the classic live shows of one of pop music’s most successful and best-loved artists – performances that also often feature some of Elton’s actual costumes, bought from his ‘Out the Closet’ sales!
With an extraordinary career spanning over 5 decades and with more than 50 ‘Top 40’ hits and over 30 albums to date
– Elton John is the single most successful solo artist ever! – Not too many performers can boast album sales of well over 250 million!
The band is able to draw on this amazing catalogue of hits to create a dynamic and powerful live celebration of Elton’s music. Featuring classics like ‘Candle in the Wind’, ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’, ‘I’m Still Standing’, ‘The Bitch is
Back’ and ‘Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting’ – as well as other live favourites, the band creates a truly spectacular and professional show – The challenge is often not what to play, but what to leave out!
Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band are now much in demand at festivals and theatres throughout the UK and beyond. They are certainly one of the top tribute acts working on the circuit today and this has recently been recognised at the National Tribute Awards 2013, run by the in uential ‘The Agents Association’ of Great Britain, who awarded the band ‘O cial UK No 1’ for performances as the ever popular Elton John Band!
“I was at the real Elton’s rst rehearsal with Nigel and Dee before his rst gigs back in the 70’s. This band has all the raw energy of that early line up. Quite simply the best Elton tribute you will see or hear anywhere!”
Stuart Epps, Record Producer (www.stuartepps.com)
“Blimey, he’s got it down, band are great too. How are his tantrums?”
Clive Franks, Elton John Record Producer and Elton’s live sound engineer for over 35 years
