THE legendary Sir Elton John brought thousands of fans to their feet in a sell-out concert which rocked Northampton – for one-night-only.
Being huge music fans we decided that we would take out a hospitality package to thank our clients and staff, plus the celebration of Rob’s (Blayney Director) 66th Birthday. We enjoyed front row action as Elton blasted out all his greatest hits from ‘Bennie and the Jets’ to ‘Candle in the Wind’. The excitement didn’t stop there! We were lucky enough to have the privilege to go back stage with the company of our guest Ben Cohen, to meet Sir Elton in his dressing room. This made Rob and myself very happy and we were extremely star struck.
After our brief encounter with one of the world’s biggest music legends things got even more crazy when he dedicated the concert to Ben Cohen and his “old friend and drinking partner” Northamptonshire cricketer Allan Lamb.
The sun shone and the rain held off for the entire evening boosting the electric atmosphere in the seated outdoor venue.
Thanks Elton for an amazing night that we and most of Northampton will never forget.
