INTERNATIONAL superstar Sir Elton John will be performing in Harrogate for the first time ever next summer.

His concert will take place in the main ring at the Great Yorkshire Showground, with specially-created outdoor seating.

It is set for Tuesday, June 5 - the final day of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend - and will make him the first artist to play the venue.

Sir Elton John said: “The first time I played in Yorkshire was in August 1970 at the Yorkshire Jazz Folk and Blues Festival near Halifax. Anyone who was there will probably remember the terrible weather rather than the music!

“Since then I’ve played Leeds and Bradford several times, and last year Scarborough for the first time, but I’ve never played in Harrogate before.

“So I’m looking forward to my first summer visit to this famous English spa town, and you can expect a night of hit songs, dancing and fun - whatever the weather!”
