Elton John Beginning Work On New Album

Elton John Working with Bernie Taupin and T Bone Burnett

Elton John – who has revamped his old Rocket Records label through a new business, the Rocket Music Entertainment Group, with artists James Blunt, Lily Allen, Leon Russell and Ed Sheeran – has said he’ll begin his new album with T Bone Burnett next January.
According to a new interview in Music Weekmagazine, Sir Elton said: “We’ve booked two weeks in the studio in January and Bernie is writing as we speak and I just want to make an album of good songs. I’m just going to go in the studio and write and see what happens and maybe just write before I go in and I really enjoyed working with T Bone and look forward to that experience again.”
He also said he was delighted to see Leon Russell’s career back on track after their collaboration on TheUnion last year.
“He’s got money in the bank, his fees have gone up, he’s happy,” said Elton. “He now wants to make a record to define himself, so it opened the door for him in a big way. Everything I wanted to do [with him] has been achieved. He’s got his respect back. My main concern was he was being neglected and forgotten about and he wasn’t just a one-track writer. He wrote so many great songs and was so integral on other people’s records.”

Fans of Elton John have two new recordings to look forward to, although there will be some waiting involved.

It was announced last week that on October 18th, Shout! Factory will release T Bone Burnett Presents: The Speaking Clock Revue – a live CD from the benefit concert organized by the Oscar-winning producer at New York's Beacon Theatre last fall. In addition to Elton and Leon Russell performing Monkey Suit, the 11-song disc will include performances by Elvis Costello, Gregg Allman, Jeff Bridges, and the balance of the show's remarkable line-up.

And, according to an in-depth interview now appearing on Music Week magazine's website, Elton will be returning to the studio in January, 2012, to record new songs (for which Bernie Taupin is currently writing lyrics) with producer T Bone Burnett.

Camping out for Elton John tickets

Several people were lined up outside Credit Union Place since Thursday morning, some as early as 26 hours before the box office opened, in hopes of securing tickets for Elton John's Sept. 14 concert in Summerside.

SUMMERSIDE – It was “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and hello sidewalk lineup at Credit Union Place on Thursday.

Dozens of Elton John fans camped outside the arena’s box office early to get the first crack at tickets for the entertainer’s September concert in Summerside.

Laurie Muttart of Seven Mile Bay was roughly 40th in line around 2 p.m. Thursday in anticipation of Friday’s box office opening.

When she heard this week's announcement that John would be coming to the city, Muttart sprang into action and chose her plan of attack.

“I mapped the floor plan, I thought about where I wanted to sit, how high I wanted to be, how short I am,” she laughed.

“I feel good about our seats. We'll have to keep an eye on them.”

All tickets for the Sept. 14 show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. They can be purchased at the box office, by telephone at 432-1234, or online at

The city issued a release Thursday advising ticket buyers to create an online account on the website as early as possible before tickets go on sale.

All phone, box office and online tickets go on sale at exactly the same time.

Christine Arsenault of Wellington was the first in line outside Credit Union Place Thursday at 8 a.m.

Arsenault brought rain gear in case of inclement weather, and said she was prepared for a sleepless night outside the facility.

“It might take me a day to get over this, but it will be worth it. If I walk out tomorrow morning with tickets in my hand, I'll be happy. Who cares? One night of no sleep,” she said. “I thought I would see (Elton John) in Vegas, but I never thought I'd see him in Summerside. It's such a small venue, I can't believe he's coming here.”

Mobile toilets were brought in Thursday afternoon as the lineup accumulated outside.

Staff members from Gentleman Jim’s also provided free servings of fish and chips to the eager ticket buyers.

It was no doubt the first time many in the line have camped out for tickets, as was the case with Linda Waddell and her 17-year-old daughter Ellen.

The pair said they were discouraged by previous attempts to purchase Elton John tickets online when the singer played in Moncton and Halifax.

“We couldn't get them online the last time, so we decided to just come here,” said Linda. “Everybody will be there. One of my daycare kids wanted a ticket, and he's 10.”

Muttart, though, is no stranger to the ticket camp-out experience.

She's waited overnight outside the Halifax Metro Centre for tickets to both the bands Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters for performances in that city.

But she said neither of those bands could hold a candle to seeing an Elton John performance on P.E.I.

“It's a once-in-a-lifetime deal. Those bands could be going for another 20 years, and I don't think (Elton John) will go for 20 more years,” said Muttart. “If you're missing this, I think you're crazy.”

Elton John rouses Atlantis crew - with Rocket Man

'Nauts toil to empty station bins, unload deliveries
The crew of space shuttle Atlantis were woken this morning by Elton John's Rocket Man, followed by a personal message from Britain's national musical treasure.
Sir Elton said: "Good morning, Atlantis, this is Elton John. We wish you much success on your mission. A huge thank you to all the men and women at NASA who worked on the shuttle for the last three decades."
Suitably encouraged, the combined Atlantis and International Space Station Expedition 28 crews will spend most of today continuing to shift boxes from the Raffaello multi-purpose logistics module.
When it arrived aboard the shuttle, Raffaello was packed with "9,403 pounds [4.26 metric tonnes] of spare parts, spare equipment, and other supplies – including 2,677 pounds of food – that will sustain space station operations for a year".
Once that's unloaded, the module will be filled with 5,600 pounds [2.54 tonnes] of redundant ISS gear and waste for return to Earth aboard Atlantis.
NASA ground operatives, meanwhile, have been busy providing the traditional stats on the last ever spacewalk of the shuttle era, carried out yesterday by Expedition 28 members Mike Fossum and Ron Garan.
The agency explains: "It was the 249th spacewalk by US astronauts, the seventh for Fossum, totaling 48 hours and 32 minutes, and the fourth for Garan, totaling 27 hours and 3 minutes. It was the 160th spacewalk in support of International Space Station assembly and maintenance, totaling 1009 hours, 9 minutes, and the 119th spacewalk out of station airlocks."
Fossum and Garan spent 6 hours and 31 minutes outside the orbiting outpost. During their excursion, they stowed a clapped-out ISS ammonia pump in Atlantis' cargo bay and installed the Robotic Refueling Mission (RRM) experiment.
NASA has the latest from Atlantis' final STS-135 mission here. ®

Elton John has reportedly been contacted by police investigating the News of the World phone hacking scandal.

The 64 year-old and his partner David Furnish, 48, are thought to have been informed by officers that their phones were targeted.
A pal said to UK newspaper Daily Star: "David was horrified at having his fears confirmed. It seems these hackers were desperately trying to find out details of his life with Elton.
"They couldn't target Elton because he never used a mobile - he hates th
