Sir Elton Preparing for SA Tour

Sir Elton John is preparing to kick off his South African tour this weekend.

The award winning singer will be donating the proceeds of his shows to the Elton John Aids Foundation.

He is believed to have arrived in South Africa a few days ago, arranging for a customs and immigration team to be deployed so that it could facilitate his arrival in Hoedspruit.

He is set to make Cape Town his base.

Sir Elton will fly to his Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth shows and then fly back to the Mother City.

Eyewitness News understands the singer will be joined by Annie Lennox for a special duet at his Cape Town show next week.

Both artists are known for their philanthropic work in the field of HIV/Aids - Lennox with her Sing campaign and Sir Elton with the Elton John Aids Foundation.
