There will be a hit parade of epic dimensions at Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens this summer when the ‘Rocket Man’ himself, Elton John, gives an open-air concert at the historic amusement park.
The British singer – best known for hits like 'Candle in the Wind', 'Your Song' and 'I Guess That's Why They Call it the Blues' – will perform at Tivoli on Monday, July 6th.
“Elton John has sung his way into the hearts of generations of music fans [and] is a member of the absolute top of international pop icons,” Tivoli’s programme director Rune Erbs Ledet said in a press release.
Over the course of his nearly five-decade career, Sir Elton has sold 250 million records and performed more than 3,500 concerts in 80 countries. His last Danish appearance was a sold-out show at Copenhagen’s Forum last year.
Tickets for the Elton John concert go on sale Monday at 10am. They will set you back 480 kroner, but include full admission to Tivoli. Regular admission to Tivoli will get you into the amusement park where you might still be able to hear the show but not enter the closed-off concert area.
Two days after the Elton John concert, Tony Bennet and Lady Gaga will take the same stage. Tickets for that concert are already on sale.
