Bright Light Bright Light Supporting Elton on UK/ Europe Tour

He's the Welshman from the small village of Crynant who has been taken under the wing of one of the biggest names in rock ‘n’ roll.

This week Bright Light Bright Light – aka Welsh musician Rod Thomas – was named as the support act for Sir Elton John’s forthcoming UK and European tour, which means he will be playing the biggest shows of his life at some of the largest arenas both home and abroad.

The tour announcement comes after he pulled off something off a masterstroke by teaming up with the music legend on his new single - I Wish We Were Leaving.

Thomas is a close friend of the star – a relationship that can be traced back years.

“Elton John and I have been friends for quite a while, actually,” explained the singer, who grew up in the village which is near Neath. “A couple of years ago I was managed by a company that Elton John owned.

“When he heard that the album I released in 2012, Make Me Believe In Hope, was coming out – he rang me and said that he loved it.”
