Elton John Rocket Tour 2012 in Blackpool’s Tower Headland Festival Venue Elton John tours Blackpool this June and this seasoned veteran rock and roll performer shows no sign of slowing down as his “Rocket Tour” takes off around the country. Appearing at Tower Headland Festival Venue after a 30 year absence from Blackpool, Elton John is the first artist to perform in the brand new outdoor concert theatre. The opportunity to be part of the 20,000 crowd for this spectacular outdoor light and pyrotechnic adventure is not to be missed. June 16 at the Tower Headland Festival Event Venue explodes for one night with Elton John and Band igniting Blackpool’s newest premier venue with his stunning theatrical and musical show. Famous for extravagant costumes, gravity defying hair pieces, outlandish glasses and electrifying stage presences, the “Rocket Tour” promises state of the art stage technology and choreography sure to rock the house. Elton John Electrifies Tower Headland Elton John will be performing a mix of old and new songs. Favourites include “Your Song,” his first chart topper from 1971 alongside “Kiss The Bride” about his marriage to Renata in the 80s. “Crocodile Rock” still has the power to get the most sedate onlooker dancing and singing along, with “Candle in the Wind” an ever present reminder of the late cultural icons Marilyn Monroe and Diana, Princess of Wales. The magic of Elton flows into his off stage persona known for lavish parties and particularly London Fashion Week after-parties and his annual summer soiree. Elton has married male partner David Furnish, blazing a trail on a social level being a much loved public person who has never denied his private life is just as important. Pushing conventional boundaries towards the modern era, the couple have adopted a child and are a legally recognised two parent family. A waxwork of Elton John resides in Madame Tussauds, yet this cultural legend and music star is far from ready to be put in a box and labelled an icon. His zest for life and stage presence draws in each and every audience member, and many in the crowd at the Blackpool stop on the “Rocket Tour” will have been to see him before. Elton has some loyal fans and booking seats early for the “Rocket Tour” is good advice. The Blackpool Tower Headland Festival Venue is a unique stop on this tour, as the potential for outdoor sky rockets and phenomenal dimensional acoustic effects sure to appeal to Elton’s crew.
