Elton Returning to Malta after 7 years

Elton John is honouring his promise to visit Malta again, returning for a concert on September 26.
Organised by NNG Promotions, the concert will see the return of one of the music icons of the last 40 years. The British singer has sold more than 250 million albums, and produced classic songs like Daniel, Your Song and Candle in the Wind.
Knighted in 1998, Sir Elton has been heavily involved in the fight against AIDS since the late 1980s. He has won five Grammy awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Tony Award.
He had played a memorable solo concert at the granaries in Floriana in 2003, during which he had promised to return in future. For the Malta concert he will be accompanied by Ray Cooper, who has performed with some of the world's finest artists.
Ticket details will be announced in the coming days.

Absolutely brilliant news. Ray Cooper is one of the best percussionists ever. He has played on a lot of early Elton albums and tours.
