Sir Elton John will be the first artist to play a concert on the new Tower Festival Headland in Blackpool this summer.

He will play one night - 16 June - at the seated outdoor venue next to Blackpool Tower.

He has played in Blackpool twice before; in November 1982 he appeared at the Blackpool Opera House.

"I'm looking forward to revisiting this legendary seaside town and playing on the Golden Mile," he said.

Natalie Wyatt, managing director of Marketing Blackpool said she was delighted to welcome him to the resort.

She said: "This concert will mark the opening of the venue as a premier space for events and festivals and is testament to the fantastic improvements which have taken place in the resort to date.

"I'm sure that many visitors will come to enjoy the concert and then take the opportunity to experience everything that Blackpool has to offer whilst they are here."

Tickets for the show will go on sale on 24 February.

Sir Elton has sold 250-million records worldwide and has received Grammy, Oscar, Ivor Novello and Brit awards.
