Well I decided to go and see Elton John last week after all. Whatever way you look at it, he’s a legend, so whilst he was on my doorstep and with having a free ticket I think I would’ve been foolish not to go.
When I told people I was going they all gave the same reaction. Which went along the lines of this:
“haha you ponce!……actually, he’ll be ace, I’d go and see him”
So my poncey legs took me along. The seats were up in the gods, but close to the stage, they were still £100 tickets though and for free I can’t really complain. One thing that struck me as soon as he walked on stage was how dwarf like he was. His little waddle reminded me of the carton of milk from that Blur video.
All in all he was rather good though. He didn’t sing Circle of Life which I was disappointed in! I didn’t realise I knew half the songs though, I was belting the words out like a bad karaoke singer for most of them!
