Eran James confirmed to support Elton John’s Hunter Valley & Adelaide shows.
2Cellos have been reported to have opened for Elton at his other concerts around the world and may continue to do so for the other venues hosting Sir John in Australia this year.
The official press release:
An endorsement from the one and only Elton John is one like no other; and so after the great success of teaming up together for Elton’s last tour of Australia, Chugg Entertainment are today thrilled to confirm that Eran James will be supporting once again for the shows in the Hunter Valley on Saturday 3 & Sunday 4 December at Hope Estate as well as the Adelaide show at Coopers Brewery on Friday 9 December.
Eran James has come a long way from the precocious child star with a record deal at 13 and a New York studio album under his belt at 16. Now 22 and an accomplished guitarist, keyboard man and songwriter, Eran has transformed from 'the beautiful boy with the beautiful voice' to a strong sensitive passionate singer-songwriter in the mould of a Jackson Browne or Cat Stevens. Eran sings and writes about his extraordinary life, his personal joys and sorrows and his hopes and fears for the world's underdogs. He puts a lot of this change down to Elton John, who spotted Eran's potential and became his personal advisor.
Of his thoughts on Elton John, Eran James said "I regard Elton very much as a friend as well as a mentor. I supported his 2008 Aussie tour and he invited me back to the UK where I spent two very hard but fulfilling years developing as a writer and musician. When Elton decides that you have something special he really wants to bring it out. Rufus (Wainwright), Lily (Allen), me and others are the recipients of this wisdom and generosity. He encouraged me to grow as a writer and performer and to stick to the music which meant the most to me. Being back on the road with Elton is an immense pleasure.”
