    A male artist can't be popular on UKMix, unless it is Justin Timberlake with a new album.

    A friend asked us if we were interested to go to see Elton John on his last tour in June.
    So we talked about it and as we like the hits, we thought it would be a good idea, as I think he will probably do the big hits as it is his final tour. So we said yes, and our friend was all happy, said he couldn't wait till June.

    So this friend arranged the tickets and then I got my calendar to write it down and I noticed the date didn't exist.
    He said it would be on Saturday 8 June. But my calendar said it would either be Friday 8 June or Saturday 9 June.
    So we had another look and then we noticed it is not coming June, but June 2019...

    Well, we've got something to look forward to.

    I do like a lot of his music, have quite a few of his albums on vinyl up through 2001's Songs From The West Coast, but I always think of that performance he did with Gaga a few years ago of Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me where he sounded decrepit and his voice sounded weak. I suppose there'd be the great thing of seeing a living legend in concert but much like latter day Paul McCartney, his voice has deteriorated so badly that I dunno if it'd really be worth going to.

    Of course Ed Sheeran has recorded Candle In The Wind god I detest him.

    I'm most interested to hear Mary J Blige do Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word and Alessia Cara's I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues.

    Here's the lead single - doesn't really do it for me.

    Mary J. Blige recorded "Sorry Seems to Be The Hardest Word" in 2004, for the Bridget Jones Movie Soundtrack. Elton and Mary even performed it together in 2004. I wonder if it'll be the 2004 version?

    I wondered the same, but it appears to be a new version. I prefer the 2004 version, the new one has a weird production.

    He played at the party after the royal wedding.
    I wished he would release his 1997 version of Candle In The Wind on Spotify.

    For those interested, Elton is the subject of John Lewis' new Christmas advert (and it's amazing):



    Listening to his remastered hits collection now as the advert has triggered my evening with Elton's music, the man has an astonishing catalogue - the greatest British musician of all-time IMO.

    Record Store Day 2019. The annual event honoring independent, local record stores will be held on April 13th, 2019 around the globe.

    Elton John’s 1979 performance in Moscow will be released for the first time in honor of its 40th anniversary. A double LP, Live From Moscow marks the first time a Western super star toured Russia.

    Bennie and the Jets is one of his most underrated songs IMO - funny as I used to dislike it but love it these days.

    Underrated?;) It's the third most successful Elton's song. It's from his most iconic and successful album. It is streamed more than 70 million times on Spotify - his best result on the service.
    It was covered and sampled numerous times.
