Sir Elton comes to Bristol
Sir Elton John   Superstar Sir Elton John is coming to Bristol in 2004 for what looks like being the biggest gig of the year.
The "Rocket Man" will be heading for Bristol
Sir Elton, probably the biggest star to perform in the city of decades, will be coming to the home of Bristol City Football Club, the Ashton Gate Stadium.

The football stadium has played host to other famous names over the years, with a visit from the Rolling Stones back in June 1982 and a major concert from Canadian singer Bryan Adams last May.

The concert, which takes place on Friday 11th June 2004 is expected to attract huge public interest.

Sir Elton, who is rarely out of the news, sold off part of the contents of his London home in September, raising more than £1.4 million.

The sale apparently took place so that the eccentric superstar could redecorate his home in a more modern style.

The Bristol welcome is sure to be warm, but the setting may be a little less than Sir Elton is used to - in June he played at the Kremlin Palace in Moscow.

Sir Elton is a bit of a football fan though, as his life presidency of Watford FC goes to show.

More than 20,000 tickets, priced between £37 and £60 (the higher figure being for the "golden circle") are available now.

You can get hold of them via the ticket hotline: 0870 4420332 or the Bristol City FC website.
