Elton Coming to Lebanon

The Byblos International Festival program was unveiled Tuesday to reveal the strong lineup of international talent scheduled to perform. Running from early July to early August, the coastal town’s jam-packed seven-event festival promises everything from jazz to Lebanese pop of yesteryear, from reggae princeling Julian Marley to Teutonic alt-rockers Milky Chance and Sir Elton John.


In what Byblos is touting as the biggest music event of 2017, the British superstar will perform a concert in the pre-Christmas season, Dec. 10, at the Forum de Beyrouth. Part of his “Wonderful Crazy Night” tour, Sir Elton John will appear with his full ensemble and is expected to perform such 20th-century classics as “Your Song,” “Rocket Man,” “Candle in the Wind,” and “I’m Still Standing.”
