X Factor Australia special guest Sir Elton John will perform a 2nd Sydney Concert on Friday 16 November at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. This concert is the ONLY Elton John SOLO performance in Australia.
This tour coincides with the brilliant success that Elton is currently riding with the release of Good Morning To The Night, a collaborative album with Australian electro-pop duo, Pnau.
Sir Elton John said, “About five years ago when I was on tour in Australia I went to a record store in Sydney where I found the Pnau album. I bought it and fell in love with it, so I got in touch with Nick and Peter from Pnau and met them for coffee the next day. Some time later they left Australia and came to London, and now my company manages them. As soon as they arrived in England we started talking about Pnau doing a remix album using my early material. Basically I gave them free rein to go through all the master tapes and select whatever they wished.”
“In July I was invited to appear with Pnau at the Ibiza Rocktronic 123 Festival. Although it was an incredibly young audience, I was very surprised and happy to hear them all singing along to Your Song before we had even started playing the dance music. That set the tone for entire show and it was an amazing night. I am hoping members of the Sydney audience will be equally enthusiastic when they come and see me play Good Morning To The Night with these two very talented Aussies.”
