Elton John: Six Of The Best

This Saturday (25 June), the legend that is Sir Elton John returns to Edinburgh for a gig at Meadowbank Stadium.

Alongside classics like Your Song, Rocket Man and Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me, the superstar will be performing tracks from new album Wonderful Crazy Night when he plays live in the Capital for the first time in more than a decade.

To mark the occasion, we’ve selected six of Sir Elton’s best songs for your listening pleasure. See below.

Speaking ahead of the gig, Sir 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 Scottish audiences who have been so faithful to me over these many decades.

“We cannot get to everyone, but I am going to try. Edinburgh has always been a very special place for me to play.

“I did my first ever truly solo show at the Playhouse back in 1976, and it also just happens to be where my guitarist and music director Davey Johnstone is from, so it’s a very special city for me and the band.”

The singer’s Wonderful Crazy Night show will be the first music concert at Meadowbank Stadium since 2007.
