14 gennaio, 2011


Il famoso baronetto inglese Elton John si esibirà in concerto il 2 luglio 2011 a Isola d’Istria.
Passa anche per la vicina Isola d’Istria il tour 2011 di Elton John, noto all’anagrafe come Reginald Kenneth Dwight.
Il cantante, pianista e compositore britannico è uno dei più grandi e celebrati artisti del rock internazionale, con la sua intensa attività musicale ha infatti contribuito notevolmente alla diffusione del piano rock e negli anni Settanta è stato la principale espressione del movimento. Nel corso della sua ormai quarantennale carriera ha venduto ufficialmente un totale di oltre 250 milioni di album.



Isola d’Istria, piccolo borgo di pescatori, dista solo 15 km dal confine italo–sloveno quindi dal centro di Trieste con la superstrada è raggiungibile in una ventina di minuti. Il semplice e spartano stadio comunale è risultato vincente su quelli nuovi di Lubiana e Capodistria. Lo stadio di Isola è già stato usato per altri grandi concerti tra i quali Iron Maiden (2000), Deep Purple e Status Quo (2004) e negli anni ‘90 anche per Iggy Pop. Per quanto riguarda la viabilità saranno disponibili moltissimi parcheggi in tutto il perimetro urbano che prevedono al massimo 15 minuti di cammino.



Quando: sabato 2 luglio 2011, ore 21.00.
Dove: Isola d’Istria, Stadio comunale.
Biglietti: a partire dai 43€ fino a 85€. Per la prevendita contattare Radioattività Trieste, rivenditore esclusivo per l’Italia. RADIOATTIVITA: tel.040 304444, fax 040 4606998, mailto: biglietteria@radioattivita.com opp concerti@radioattivita.com.

Elton John headed out into Hollywood last night, presumably leaving his partner David Furnish holding the baby.
The new father was pictured leaving the trendy Troubadour nightclub via the back door after watching Plan B perform a gig there.
The trendy West Hollywood venue is a favourite among party-hard celebs, including the likes of Lindsay Lohan.

Elton, 63, was dressed in a suit and T-shirt combo, complete with his trademark tinted glasses.
Both Elton and David, 48, welcomed the birth of their son - Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John - on Christmas Day.
He was born in Los Angeles to a mystery surrogate mother using eggs from another unidentified woman.

Furnish recently said that they will bring up their son themselves with minimal help.

He said: 'We want to be active parents.'

However, with Elton's impending 26-date tour, he may well require a little bit of help in the child care department.
The 26-date tour of Europe and the U.S. kicks off in France on January 26 and the singer is expected to have nannies and helpers stationed in each of his homes.
The singer and Mr Furnish have already spent thousands renovating their Windsor home in preparation for when they move back from LA with the child.
It's something of a volte face for the couple. Just last year, Mr Furnish indicated that they would wait to start a family until Sir Elton had stopped touring.
‘I don’t think our lives are suited to raising children,’ he said. ‘We’re busy flying places all the time.

'We don’t want to put the raising of children into the hands of nannies and housekeepers. We want to be active parents. We have godchildren and kids that we support in Africa, so we’re fine.’

`Rocket Man' fitting tribute to Elton John

Rus Anderson pays tribute to Elton John.
Elton John is scheduled to perform at the Reno Events Center on Feb. 19, with ticket prices starting at $70 and heading upward - way upward - from there.
But for those who can't afford to see the iconic pop star - or who would rather not make the trip to Nevada - performer Rus Anderson offers the next best thing.
Anderson tours the country impersonating Elton John circa 1984, equipped with exact costume replicas and set lists. His show, "Rocket Man: The Elton John Tribute," will hit the stage at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Norris Theatre in Rolling Hills Estates.
"It's really fun, it's a really visual show with the costumes," Anderson said. "It's pretty interactive. We tell some stories about his time on the road."
The 30-year-old native of Scotland has been performing the tribute show for about six years. "Rocket Man" started out as a solo act, but Anderson has since added a six-piece band.
Anderson was singing in pubs and performing theater in Scotland when people began telling him he sounded like a young Elton John. After considering the possibility, Anderson agreed. So he put together a tribute show in which he would re-enact one of John's mid-'80s concerts.
while donned in such John trademarks as feather boas, platform shoes and oversized sunglasses.
"It's very sincere," Anderson said. "The audience will leave thinking about the real Elton John. They won't believe they are watching an impersonator."


Though Anderson has never met John, he says he has studied old concert footage and keeps an archive of costume photos to make sure his act is on par.
"It's really become my mission to mimic him in a realistic fashion," Anderson said. "And the more I do it, the easier it gets. It's not just a career, it's become a hobby because his music is so fun to perform."
The Norris Theatre has a long history of presenting tribute shows, says the theater's artistic director, Jim Gruessing. Last year, a Neil Diamond tribute act sold out, so for 2011 management was looking for a comparable artist.
"When I found Anderson, I said, `This is it, this is the real deal,"' Gruessing said. "In the videos and the song clips I watched, he kind of embodies the late-'70s and early-'80s Elton John."
John has sold more than 250 million albums during his career and his tribute to Princess Diana following her death, the 1997 single "Candle in the Wind" - a reworked version of his '70s tribute to Marilyn Monroe - is the best-selling single of all time.
This will be Anderson's first time performing the tribute show in California.
"When we go to the Norris we are going to put on a great show," Anderson said. " Anderson takes on the persona of the pop legend singing hits such as "Tiny Dancer," "Your Song," "Crocodile Rock" and "I'm Still Standing," I'm doing my best to keep John's dream alive and keep people hearing his music ."
