Elton John heads to Sunderland after 'emotional' concert in Liverpool
Elton John is arriving in Sunderland on a serious high after an 'emotional' performance in Liverpool on Saturday night.
After injury disrupted Elton 's farewell tour dates, the music icon is now back on home turf for a string of massive gigs in the UK, one of those being his show at the Stadium of Light on Sunday, June 9. It's been a while since the now 75-year-old's many North East fans snapped up tickets for the date and there are now just hours to go.
Elton John's setlis t features a whole host of classics from his enviable back catalogue, including I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues, Crocodile Rock, Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word and Your Song. He's been going down a storm in the likes of Norwich and Liverpool and it was the latter gig that prompted an Instagram post from the singer about how amazing the crowd were, telling fans he was genuinely moved by the response.
Next to pictures of him in action at Anfield Stadium, Elton wrote: "Sometimes you play a show that strikes different, where the audience responds in a way that truly moves you. Liverpool, you were that show.
"Thank you for the most incredible night, I love you all so much!!"
Someone who was in the crowd at the concert, responded: "It was amazing, we loved every moment at the Anfield show last night! Thank you for the best experience ever!" A second told him: "I was there front row .thanks for the kisses,!! On our feet all night..the most spectacular and amazing atmosphere and a fabulous show by Elton and the Band .superb. loved it."
