ELTON JOHN AND HIS BAND will bring their unforgettable live Show back to Live At The Marquee in Cork on 20 JUNE 2017.
In his five-decade career Elton John has sold more than 250 million records, making him one of the top-selling music artists in the world. He has more than 50 Top 40 hits, including seven consecutive No. 1 US albums.
His single ‘Candle in the Wind 1997’ sold over 33 million copies worldwide and holds the record for the best-selling single of all time. He also holds the record of most appearances on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart, with his most recent single ‘A Good Heart’ (from his 33rd studio Album Wonderful Crazy Night) marking his 72nd entry.
Having given over 4,000 performances in more than 80 countries over a career spanning more than fifty years, Elton said:
“The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family, and I am only too aware of just how precious the time ahead is.
“My sons are growing up so quickly; their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them. So these concerts will give me the chance to thank the fans who have been so faithful to me over these many decades.
“My appearance at Live at the Marquee in June will be my 4th show at that wonderful festival since July 2007. It is always a joy to play in Cork and my band and I are looking forward to enjoying what are always some of the greatest audiences on the tour.”
Indeed the confirmation of Elton John’s return to Cork in 2017 will make him the only International Artist to have played the Marquee series 4 times and will be his 23rd concert appearance in Ireland since first playing the National Stadium in Dublin in 1979.
As one of the greatest and most successful live artists, the show at Live At The Marquee will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five decade career.
