The ‘Rocket Man’ is taking off: Destination Newcastle

Born in 1947 as Reginald Kenneth Dwight but more commonly known to you and me as the one and only Elton John is on the UK leg of his 2009 Red Piano Tour. In his four-decade career, John has sold more than 200 million records, making him one of the most successful artists of all time. His single, Candle in the Wind 1997, has sold over 37 million copies, becoming the best selling single of all time. He has more than 50 Top 40 hits, including seven consecutive No. 1 U.S. albums, 56 Top 40 singles, 16 Top 10, four No. 2 hits, and nine No. 1 hits. He has won five Grammy awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Tony Award. His success has had a profound impact on popular music and has contributed to the continued popularity of the piano in rock and roll. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him #49 on its list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Sandwiched inbetween Sheffield and Wembley Elton makes a stop in Newcastle Upon Tyne for one night only! Fans from all around the UK will be flocking to this event and accommodation should be high on your priorities – you don’t want to ruin a fantastic concert by having nowhere to stay now do you? Thats where serviced apartments can come to your rescue.
