Elton John is coming to Cornwall for his first performance in 30 years. 

Elton and his band will visit the Eden Project on Tuesday 16 June 2015 to perform at the Eden Sessions as part of his European tour.

The tour will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career, including a selection of songs from his highly-acclaimed album, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which recently celebrated its 40th anniversary with a Deluxe Edition.

Elton John’s band includes original member Nigel Olsson on drums, as well as Davey Johnstone on guitar, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.

Elton said: “I am very pleased that we will be able to fit the Eden Project into our tour schedule next year. The last time I played the Cornwall area was in 1985 and that was just too long ago! My band and I have been enjoying playing summer festivals the past couple of years, and we expect great things from this one as well. It promises to be a fantastic time.”

Eden co-founder Sir Tim Smit said today:  “Wow - what a Christmas present to be able to say that a man who shaped the soundtrack to so many lives and who is genuinely worthy of the title National Treasure, global superstar, and all those other good words is coming to play a living theatre that we believe looks as if it was designed with him in mind.

“This promises to be a summer night that will burn itself into our memory and the intimacy of the setting will make it unforgettable. To hear possibly the greatest showman in the world perform his fabulous catalogue in the best outdoor arena in the world might make you believe you'd died and gone to Eden!”

Tickets go on sale to the public Friday December 12 at 4pm. Call 01726 811972 for tickets or visit www.edensessions.com for more information.
