+ Superb comedy Vocalist Ali James

Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as 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 find a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.

 

A lifelong Elton John fan, Paul first started singing and performing Elton’s songs whilst studying Performing Arts at University in the early 1980’s. With an extraordinarily similar singing voice to Sir Elton’s, Paul is able to draw on an amazing back catalogue of hits to produce a truly wonderful celebration of Elton’s music. Paul’s performances often feature some of Elton’s actual clothes, bought from his ‘Out the Closet’ sales.

 

Elton John’s extraordinary repertoire means that Ultimate Elton can serenade an audience with some of the most beautiful ballads ever written, including Your Song, Candle in the Wind, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me, Sacrifice and Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word. He can also change the pace and get people on the dance floor with classics like Crocodile Rock, I’m Still Standing, The Bitch is Back and Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting. Ultimate Elton’s challenge is often not what to play, but what to leave out! Support for the evening comes from a fantastic vocalist & comedian Ali James ** Please note that this is a solo gig' Event will commence at 8pm
