WHO IS THE SUPPORT ACT
Queensland folk/roots duo Busby Marou have been hand picked to open for Elton who has an interest in new and up-and-coming artists.
WHAT WILL ELTON SING
Going by previous concerts this year, it’s expected the megastar will perform around 22 hits from his 50-year career.
“Bennie and the Jets”, “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” and “Candle In The Wind” seem certain to be included in the list.
WHERE IS ELTON STAYING
Unfortunately Sir Elton John is flying in on a rented helicopter shortly before the show, then flying out again.
