Elton John played a concert to a sell out crowd at his beloved Watford Football Club on Saturday night - and then delighted fans by suggesting a return in two years.

He rocked 23,000 fans at Vicarage Road with a two and a half hour set, during which he spoke of his love for the club.
The dress code was yellow and a great deal of the concert-goers followed it, many in Watford shirts from over the years, others in other forms of the summery colour that also reflected the perfect warm evening.
Arriving on stage in trademark shades, and wearing a dazzling blue and gold suit with gold cravat, Elton entertained the lively crowd from there on in - with old classics and songs from his new album alongside each other.
In the surprise of the night, he said he'd be coming back in two years time to celebrate his 60th birthday with another concert to raise further funds for the club.

Tickets for the show had sold out almost immediately after they were released for sale, primarily to Watford Season Ticket holders so the fact that a large number of the people in the stadium were Hornets' fans only added to the atmosphere.
And he told these enthusiastic supporters that despite spending most of his time in America, the club was never far from his heart, and that he loved it more than they could ever imagine.
The concert was thought to have raised in the region of £1.3m and Elton said that this would be spent on players - and not on buying back the ground, as many had expected.

Fans leaving the show said that they had not been disappointed.
"I had an amazing evening, it was fantastic" said one. "Elton was a really good showman and I'll definitely go back when he does it in two years for his 60th."
"First class - an absolute legend" echoed another.
