Elton John fans won’t have to wait long until the singer comes to Sunderland to treat spectators at the Stadium of Light to a series of his greatest hits.
The I’m Still Standing star will travel to Sunderland on Sunday June 19 as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which includes over 300 concerts worldwide. Tens of thousands of spectators are expected to flock to Sunderland to see Elton in what promises to be an unforgettable fan experience.
Those heading to the concert will no doubt want to buy something to remember the show, although as with most concert memorabilia, it seems that Elton’s is rather expensive. Here is a list of merchandise available on the official Elton John website website it gives a clue as to what spectators can expect to see on sale at the Stadium of Light on Sunday.
