We respectfully ask that you consider arriving earlier than normal to give yourself plenty of time to enter the venue.

Jake Isaac announced as support for Elton John's UK outdoor Summer shows

Applauded singer-songwriter Jake Isaac announced as support for Elton John's Wonderful Crazy Night UK outdoor show this Summer.

Isaac will support the pop icon across seven shows this June.

Hailing from South London with Caribbean Roots, Isaac released his debut album ‘Our Lives’ last week, and has received support all over the world selling out headline shows in the US, Europe and the UK, as well as having previously supported Ella Eyre and Paloma Faith. 

Jake’s distinctive brand of feisty soul pop, bold anthemic hooks, and instantly recognisable vocal have led him to gain plaudits from key press including Wonderland, Notion and The Independent and radio, with BBC Introducing being early fans, and achieve over 30 million streams- all before Jake signed to Elton John management company. 

Elton John fans will now get the chance to see one of the brightest young stars in British music as Jake Isaac will support the legendary Elton on seven of his upcoming UK shows, starting at The Stoop in Twickenham on 3 June. 

The tour will then travel to Derby’s The 3aaa County Ground (4 June), Blackburn Ewood Park (10 June), Peterborough ABAX Stadium (11 June), Ipswich Portman Road (17 June), Widnes Select Security Stadium (18 June) and Airdrie Excelsior Stadium (24 June), all of which tickets are still available for. 

...It’s an INSANE privilege to open up for the iconic sir Elton John!!! Think I might actually have to play my socks off!!!
— Jake Isaac

An unmistakable name in the history of popular music, Elton John has done it all – and then some. From being awarded multiple Grammys and BRITs, and even an Oscar and a Tony Award, Elton has proven his universal acclaim. In addition to selling more than 250 million records worldwide, with 38 gold and 31 platinum or multi-platinum albums, he has also written the music for stage and screen successes Billy Elliot: The Musical, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida, and The Lion King, which was named the highest-grossing stage show or film release in the world. Elton John has over 4,000 performances, in more than 80 countries, to his credit since launching his first tour in 1970. Having performed at several of the world’s most recognisable venues – including a pair of residencies at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Elton continues to be one of this country’s biggest pop-culture exports.

Elton John celebrates 70th birthday and 50-year partnership with Bernie Taupin

Tomorrow, March 25, a gala fundraising event celebrating Elton John’s 70th birthday and his 50-year writing partnership with Bernie Taupin will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) and the UCLA Hammer Museum. Held at Red Studios in Los Angeles, the evening will be hosted by Rob Lowe and will feature a gala dinner and special musical performances by Lady Gaga and other surprise guests.

Watch a short film with a selection of highlights
from Elton’s amazing career here.

In keeping with Elton's commitment to philanthropy, he is eager to leverage the celebration of his 70th birthday and his amazing songwriting collaboration with Bernie Taupin in order to support two worthy causes that are the driving passions of his life: ending the global HIV/AIDS epidemic, and art in all its many forms. To that end, this event will raise urgently needed money to help fund the grant-making initiatives of the Elton John AIDS Foundation and exhibitions and programs at the Hammer Museum in LA.

This very special evening will honor the many strands of an unrivalled career and life that still continue to enrich, enthrall, and inspire. Elton John is a true musical and cultural iconoclast, with a record that speaks for itself. He has achieved worldwide sales of over 250 million records and has 58 Billboard Top 40 singles in the United States. He has written the music for the stage and screen successes Billy Elliot: The Musical, Elton John & Tim Rice's Aida, and Disney's cinematic and theatrical sensation The Lion King. A tireless live performer, Elton has played more than 3,500 concerts in over 80 countries. He has collected 12 Ivor Novello Awards, six GRAMMYS®, two Brits, an Oscar®, and a Tony. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and The Songwriters Hall of Fame, and has received a knighthood from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1998. He is a tireless charitable campaigner and philanthropist, notoriously outspoken for the causes he believes in. Elton John is an undisputed pop culture legend. His knowledge and championing of new music has helped many new artists achieve recognition and success. He is constantly moving forward, never resting on his laurels, never becoming complacent, predictable, or dull.

Of his career with Bernie Taupin, Elton simply says, "It's the same excitement now as when we first started. That this year marks the 50th anniversary of my partnership with Bernie Taupin is mind boggling for me because it seems like only yesterday that I met him. It's an amazing achievement to stay with one person for 50 years on a creative basis, in an industry where that doesn't really happen very much."

On reaching his 70th year, Elton notes, "I'm interested in moving forward all the time, with what I create, my collaborations, and also with discovering the work of other people. I think age is immaterial, provided we keep our minds alive by being open to new things. I can be as excited by a new artist who plays me their demo as I am by a new record of one of my musical heroes. I can be excited by playing a new city I've never played before, or revisiting somewhere I know well and seeing how it's changed. Life is a constant state of flux for us all, and I like to embrace that. I also feel very happy to use my position to bring attention to injustice in the world, and to try to help where I can. At this time in my life I'm the happiest I have ever been."

Bernie Taupin says of Elton, "It's been an unconventional partnership and while we pretty much patented the two-rooms technique I'd venture to say you'd be hard pressed to find a couple of songwriters more in sync with each other and their craft".

Elton John and his band perform across the UK this Summer on his Wonderful Crazy Night Tour. Full details and tickets here.
