This June The Rocket Man returned to Aberdeen! Four Band of Brother and Band of Sister members were invited to the concert, with tickets just five rows from the front of the stage!
The Tour 'Sir Elton John & His Band' featured iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five decade career. Set in a specially constructed outdoor stage the GE Oil and Gas Arena, which holds around 14,000 people, was packed! Some of the audience members brought their best 70s flares and their largest gold framed spectacles to wear whilst enjoying Elton’s tunes.
Photos of his glittering career were flashed on to a giant screen during the rendition of the 1983 hit, I’m Still Standing, an apt song choice for many of our fellowship members.
BoB Member JJ Chalmers, who attended the event said: “Awesome is a word I probably over use, but In a word it is the only way to describe Elton John rocking it out on the Piano, Live! It was a brilliant night so a huge thank you to Elton and Co for providing tickets, in the 5th Row! Also a thanks to Mary Wilson who heads up BOB/BOS in Scotland; it is particularly wonderful to have these types of events happening North of the Border.”
