Logistical issues for Elton gig

Tue, 17 May 2011

The promoters of the Elton John concert say they're working to make sure it goes ahead as planned.


Elton is due to appear in Noble's Park on 16th June in the Valhalla Tent, which was meant to be used for the Bay Festival over the following three days.


Organisers stress the Bay Festival was nothing to do with them but as they were due to share the same infrastructure, it does leave them with some 'logistical issues.'


They say they'll be working with Douglas Corporation, the Manx Government and local companies to make sure the concert goes ahead.


Apparently, Elton says he's looking forward to performing on the Isle of Man for the first time.


Tickets for the concert will be dispatched from next week.


It's not yet known whether an alternative venue will be needed..


It's also unclear whether the original Valhalla Tent had been booked for the Bay Festival, with suppliers claiming it hadn't.
