Elton John To Bring Effects Laden Show

Issued: Monday, 26 November 2007

Elton John Concert In NZ To Include Features That Celebrate His First Solo Performance In The Country With Effects That Will Make The Visit Unique!
Capital C: Concerts Has Added A Number Of Elements To The Concert On December 6 That Will Make The Event A Momentus One.

Special Lighting Effects Alone Will Compliment The ‘Festival Of Lights’
That Will Be On Early This Year.

Promoter Phil Sprey at Capital C: Concerts said, “We never just put an artist on a bare stage, we look at making each of our concerts a complete experience.” “We could have gone to other cities with bigger audience capacities than the TSB Bowl of Brooklands but believed from the outset that his solo tour would ‘feel’ better in the surrounding that New Plymouths number one venue has.”

With the maximum capacity of approx 15,000 only a handful of tickets remain in the last 2 weeks prior to the show. As Sprey added, “when you have a great artist appearing in a provincial city the one factor that always comes to bear is accommodation, which in New Plymouths case is a bursting point. Venture Taranaki the regional tourism authority has however found a number of spaces still exist is short distance from New Plymouth and these are now being ‘discovered’ by those out of town visitors coming to the concert.

Sir Elton John will arrive in NZ on December 6 direct from a concert in Townsville Australia and may drive north into New Plymouth from Wellington and enjoy a bit of NZ scenery before the performance.
