Elton John & Band
Elton John & Band

An international pop icon and a true star of the 1970s, Elton John is also a remarkable pianist with dozens of hits to his name.

Reginald Kenneth Dwight – alias Elton John – formed a passion for music very young, and was awarded the first prize for piano by the Royal Academy at the age of 11.

In the late 60s, he moved into pop music and began his career playing with small local bands. He released his first solo album, Empty Sky, in 1969, in partnership with the lyricist Bernie Taupin. Surfing the pop wave, with flamboyant hats and glasses, he became a true star in the early 70s. Showing all his eccentricities, he began to parody himself, wearing high heels and bizarre outfits. The hits and albums stacked up, including Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Greatest Hits, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy and A Single Man. In the 1980s, he began to lend his image and songs out for good causes. He donated all the profits from his album Sleeping With The Past, including the hit song 'Sacrifice', which was a world-wide success, to AIDS charities. At the end of 1990, Elton John released the double album The Very Best of Elton John, which won him Best Male Artist at the Brit Awards. To Be Continued, The One (his best-selling album), work on the Lion King soundtrack and Love Songs followed. In 2000, after creating the musical Aida, Elton celebrated his 30-year career with the release of One Night Only, The Greatest Hits, a compilation of his greatest hits performed live. In 2004, he released Peachtree Road. In 2008, he staged the Red Piano Tour with David LaChapelle.

les 3 olympia sont complets sont complets en effet ! et cela s'est rempli très rapidement d'ailleurs ! Sinon pour obtenir des tickets moins chers il faut regarder en Allemagne il y a parfois des concerts avec fosse debout ! c'était l'info !

Je ne peux m’empêcher de répondre sur le prix des places. Le but rappelons le est de les vendre TOUTES, et le plus cher possible... Un bon prix de place est un prix "élevé" pour un concert "complet". Alors le prix est juste. Si c'est trop cher, ca ne se vend pas. Si le concert est complet, alors le prix est correct. On peut se poser la question de concerts pour "riches"... Dans le cadre d'artistes comme EJ qui ne peuvent pas (ou rarement...du moins dans notre pays) proposer de fosse debout (avec donc des prix plus abordables); les places sont cheres, oui.

non le prix des tickets est parfaitement normal, cela est représentatif de la taille de la salle et du cachet de l'artiste demandé. Après on ne peut pas forcément avoir 1 troisième rang avec une proximité avec l'artiste pour 100 €... De mon côté, je vais faire les 3 olympia ou si plus il y et cela m'a couté plus de 700 € et je ne cache pas mon plaisir pour autant. Dans le pire des cas il y a d'autres dates en dehors de Paris, mais ce sera assurément moins bien... Au pire il y a les tournées en Allemagne mais les prix sont proches ( cf : le piano solo de Regensburg )
