Elton Coming to Ischgl

Ischgl’s ski season was opened last year with a performance by Barbadian starlet Rihanna and the ski season looks set to be rounded off in an equally impressive manner with a performance by Sir Elton John.

Sir Elton will sing at the closing Top Of The Mountain concert at the popular Austrian ski holiday resort on May 3rd 2008.

And the veteran artist is no stranger to Ischgl, having first featured on the bill at the resort’s end of season concert in 1995.

"We are very excited to have signed Sir Elton to perform his second concert at Ischgl – he is one of the world’s biggest stars and Ischgl has once again shown that our resort is a world stage featuring the biggest names," Ischgl tourist director Andreas Steib told World Snowboard Guide.

She added that the concert will be "fabulous" and the perfect way in which to complete what has so far been a "fantastic" season.

Also on the bill for the event are British band Stereophonics. Previous acts to have appeared include Bob Dylan and Lionel Richie.
