We all know the news that Elton John is coming to Australia. What we don’t all know, perhaps, is that the surface area of a human lung is equivalent to a tennis court. But let’s focus, shall we? Where does one begin when it comes to Sir Elton? He has sold a lazy 250 million albums. He has been at the top of the charts for nearly four decades. And he is a Grammy, Oscar, Tony and BRIT winner. But to so many he is responsible for writing the music for the film and stage production of The Lion King. Playing all his hits (and he has many to choose from), the Rocket Man will perform at Mt Duneed Estate, Geelong on December 12. Elton’s first performance in Australia was in 1971.
