‘I'm Still Standing – The Music of Elton John’ is a musical celebration of the legendary 50-year career of Sir Elton John featuring all of his greatest hits including ‘Crocodile Rock’, ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Candle in the Wind’, ‘Don't Go Breaking My Heart’, ‘Sacrifice’, ‘Daniel’ and ‘The Circle of Life’ performed by the outstanding Joel Buckingham and backed by an amazing live band.
No show about Elton John would be complete without the outrageous outfits and glasses which have become a signature of his live shows from the early 1970's right up to the modern day. Elton John has sold over 366 million records and is also credited with the biggest selling single of all time. His unique blend of pop and rock styles turned him into one of the biggest icons of the 20th century.
Alongside his stellar solo career, he has also found time to compose scores and songs for several West End Musicals including the award winning Billy Elliot and movies such as the much acclaimed The Lion King. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 and knighted in 1998.
Joel Buckingham takes on the task of recreating the Elton John live experience. Joel was born with a similar timbre to Elton John and just like his hero began piano lessons as a child. A decade on cruise ships as a professional musician saw him hone his craft and in the ensuing years he has performed worldwide as Elton John.
