    Fantastic Donovan-esque rare as hen's teeth psysh-pop banger.
  2. Elton John

    What was true last year doesn't hold for this year. It's a no brainer that this being his farewell will increase demand. It wouldn't surprise me if he actually does play Wembley or Hyde Park towards the end of the run.

    I think it's safe to say that the current Dwight live experience is better than the Paul Young Show (any excuse)
  4. Elton John

    Just googled the Davos thing - seems he was there picking up a human rights award for his AIDS foundation. If he also did a gig while there there's not much about it online. As for the tantrums, I'd imagine most people couldn't give a fiddlers whether or not he's a diva. We're not all avid Hello magazine readers like the Russ-ster.

    It's missing this

    He could bring Limbaugh onstage with him and it'd still be more palatable than the Foo Fighters covering Queen.

    I assume his top range has gone, but it's probably still servicable. My wife saw him 18 months back (over Glastonbury weekend as it happens) and said he sounded pretty good.
  8. Elton John

    I've narrowed it down to one of these three contenders:
  9. Talking Heads

    Colin Baker wishes he still had the lustrous locks of Chris Frantz.
  10. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    Moby's an anomaly cos he doesn't have a well loved catalogue or a consistent run of form / popularity - just one freakishly successful / ubiquitous album. A one hit wonder, give or take a few other bits and bobs.
  11. Elton John

    Not exactly got a spotless track record either.
  12. Talking Heads

    Bermuda Triangle - it makes people disappear

    #WrongBazza could be 2019's #RightBazza. If he's not retired, which I think he's threatening to.

    2017's one we coulda won. And you will call her Miss Ross muthafukkaz

    Headlining the G is nicer full stop to a career than topping it off by playing to a 3/4 full Glebe Park.....which has pretty much been his June routine for the last wee while.

    Tintin and the Tantric Marathon
  18. Elton John

    Bennie and the Jets seems to have been a low-key influence on a fair few recent jams: Solange, Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest....and there's another one that escapes me..... Edit: Is it RTJ?

    A glorious sight. A field full of meerkats as far as the eye can see, all in the sentry position. Muppet crocodiles counting down the moments till they can chime in on backing vocals. Swahili chanting coming through the speakers. A live giraffe wandering through the crowd wearing daft glasses. Then Eavis strides to the front of the stage holding Elton over his head like the baby Simba.

    You won't be saying fuck off when the giant inflatable People's Princesses rise up on either side of the Pyramid.
  22. Elton John

    I sat on the roof and kicked up the moss Well, too much drum'n'bass late at night has got me quite cross
  23. Elton John

    Yup. Being (one of) his last ever show(s) definitely increases the prestige of the booking.
  24. Elton John

    If I was The Thingy......but then again no
