And his band, plus special guests
AT THE GREAT YORKSHIRE SHOWGROUND, HARROGATE
TUESDAY 5 JUNE 2012
LIMITED EDITION PREMIUM PACKAGE* TICKETS £100
A LIMITED NUMBER OF TICKETS HAVE BEEN GENEROUSLY DONATED BY SIR ELTON HIMSELF TO RAISE FUNDS FOR
THE SHEFFIELD INSTITUTE FOR TRANSLATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE (SITraN)
SITraN is leading the way in research into neurological illnesses such as Motor Neurone Disease and Parkinson’s Disease. With an ageing population, these diseases are affecting more and more people. By the age of 80, one in four people will have a neurological illness.
SITraN was the result of a major fundraising campaign by concerned individuals which led to a gift of £10 million – the largest philanthropic gift since the foundation of the University in 1905. We were delighted that Her Majesty The Queen opened the new institute in November 2010.
But there are still some key pieces of equipment needed – specifically a DNA sequencing machine, which costs nearly £400,000.
If you would like to see Sir Elton and help us with our cause, please do purchase tickets for the event. Tickets are priced at £100 each and the package includes:
• A premium ticket for the concert
• Transport from the University of Sheffield to and from Harrogate (optional)

Updated Rolling Stone '500 greatest' list stays old-school

WASHINGTON - If you believe Rolling Stone's 2012 list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/500-greatest-albums-of-all-time-19691231 bands just aren't making the kind of music they used to make.
In updating its 2003 list, Rolling Stone added 30 albums, while displacing 30 from its 500 greatest.
The top 10 remain the same:
Beatles -- "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"
Beach Boys -- "Pet Sounds"
Beatles -- "Revolver"
Bob Dylan -- "Highway 61 Revisited"
Beatles -- "Rubber Soul"
Marvin Gaye -- "What's Going On"
Rolling Stones -- "Exile on Main Street"
Clash -- "London Calling"
Bob Dylan -- "Blonde on Blonde"
Beatles -- "White Album"
With four of the Beatles' albums in the top 10, some might question whether the Rolling Stones list skews too far toward its older readers.
The 2012 list includes three Kanye West albums -- "Late Registration," "The College Dropout," and "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy."
Radiohead makes the list twice, for "Amnesiac" and "In Rainbows."
Lil Wayne "Tha Carter III" joins the list, as does the late Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black."
Albums that slipped off the list include Beach Boys "Sunflower," David Bowie's "Changesone," Elton John's "Elton John" and Madonna's "Music."
