Elton's Tenerife Concert Threatened Again
ROCK superstar Sir Elton John will be coming to Tenerife after all. And this time it will be in the south of the island.
After the abortive attempt by Santa Cruz city council to book him for an open-air seafront concert in the island's capital, he will now be appearing on January 24.
Canarian promoters Sun Live Festival announced yesterday, Wednesday, that he will appear at the Olympic Stadium, Arona, and it was confirmed on the megastar's own website.
But The Tenerife Sun has been told the venue has been changed to Costa Adehe Golf, in a specially prepared amphitheatre on the driving range, with room for 50,000.
Unlike with the premature claim by Santa Cruz deputy mayor, Angel Llanos, to have booked him for November 17, this new arrangement looks certain to go ahead.
Contracts have been signed and the fee has been paid upfront, according to our sources. Sir Elton is expected to bring his big band show direct from a date in Johannesburg.
Tickets, at $35 standing, $90 standing at the front and $120 seated, are expected to become available through his website or from the usual sources before this weekend.
Ring 902 056492, Monday to Saturday 10am to 6pm for details.
