Elton John to play outdoor concert at Harrogate's Great Yorkshire Showground

Sir Elton John has announced that he will play a special outdoor concert at the Great Yorkshire Showground next year.

Fans booking Harrogate hotels will be able to see the Rocketman singer become the first ever artist to play the Yorkshire Event Centre when he takes to the Main Ring on Bank Holiday Tuesday June 5th.

Elton said that the first time he played in Yorkshire was in 1970 near Halifax, where the weather was "terrible".

"Since then I’ve played Leeds and Bradford several times, and last year Scarborough for the first time, but I’ve never played in Harrogate before. So I'm looking forward to my first summer visit to this famous English spa town, and you can expect a night of hit songs, dancing and fun whatever the weather," he added.

The venue is also host to the famous Great Yorkshire Show, which is often visited by the royal family and highlights every aspect of agriculture, from livestock to machinery and food.
