Fans agree Elton John 'rocked'

Thousands of Elton John fans got to see the star perform his best known hits on the Island last night.

The legendary singer played for over two hours at the venue in Noble's Park.

Elton was without his band for last night's performance, but that wasn't a problem as the sound of one talented man and his piano is obviously more than enough to fill a massive marquee.

He began his set with some of the less well-known tracks from his early albums and had engaged the crowd even before he pulled out some of his bigger hits like 'Your Song' and 'Rocket Man.'

Once the hits started, they just kept on coming. They included 'Benny and the Jets,' 'Daniel,' 'Sacrifice' and 'I Guess That's Why The Call it the Blues.'

Needless to say when Elton said goodnight to the crowd after belting out Crocodile Rock, he wasn't going to be left to get away without an encore.

Once he came back on stage, the star signed a number of autographs for people in the front row.

Despite delivering top quality performances of his huge hits, he probably got the biggest cheer of the night for signing a Manx flag!   

Elton John finished off the show with 'Circle of Life' and 'Can you Feel the Love Tonight?'

He told the audience he was sorry it had taken him 41 years to get here and promised to come back again.

The concert was met with rave reviews on social media sites afterwards.
