I'm Still Standing - The Music of Elton John

 

BOOK TICKETS

This show has been rescheduled from Saturday 18 September 2021. All original tickets remain valid for the new date.

 

I'm Still Standing - The Music of Elton John is a musical celebration of the legendary 50 year career of Sir Elton John.

 

Featuring all of his greatest hits performed by the outstanding Joel Buckingham and backed by an amazing live band.

 

No show about Elton John would be complete without the outrageous outfits and glasses which have become a signature of his live shows from the early 1970s right up to the modern day.

 

Joel was born with a similar timbre to Elton John and just like his hero began piano lessons as a child. He's performed worldwide as Elton in front of packed houses at venues as prestigious as Alexandra Palace.

 

With one of the hottest bands in the UK comprising of hand-picked musicians at the top of their game and a camaraderie that is evident in both their playing and performance on stage.

 

The show features both live and studio arrangements of Elton’s performances, carefully arranged by experienced Musical Director Martin Bentley.

 

Show producer Ash Sethi ensures that both the performance and staging are of the highest level in order to further the impression of watching the real Elton John live.

 

The challenge of writing a show that covers five decades and multiple costumes was blending it all together. This has been achieved with strong imagery throughout the show aided by the use of projections both on the screen and even the piano itself.

 

Recreated audio snippets add to the atmosphere of each decade and combine with the visuals to set the perfect backdrop for each era of Elton's long career.
