Win a chance to Dance with Elton & get a Backstage Tour


POP legend Elton John returns to Liverpool's ECHO arena this month.

And we’re offering you the chance to win the prize of a lifetime.

We’ve got a pair of front row tickets to give away, which include the chance to take to the stage with Elton during one of his smash-hit songs.

We’ve also got two pairs of tickets which include a backstage tour with one of the show’s producers.

And that’s not all: we’ve got a further seven pairs of £75 tickets to give away for the October 28 show.

The concert is the last UK date for Elton’s spectacular Red Piano show, which started in 2004 and ran for 243 performances at The Colosseum in Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace before hitting the road.

Elton said: "We really enjoyedplaying to Liverpool last December, the reaction from the audience and the musical history that the city has left us in no doubt that the ECHO Arena had to be the last venue we played in the UK.”

The show features Elton and his band performing the pick of his back catalogue – including hits such as Rocket Man, Yellow Brick Road and Candle In The Wind – surrounded by a feast of images from throughout his career.

The larger-than-life set, complete with Elton’s Yamaha red grand piano, has been designed by acclaimed photographer and good friend of Elton, David LaChapelle.
