Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as Sir Elton John does both! Close your eyes and you won’t believe your ears, open your eyes and you won’t believe them either! You simply won’t find a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.
Rapidly established as the foremost Elton John tribute act in the UK, ‘Ultimate Elton’ presents an uncannily accurate reproduction of the classic live shows of one of pop music’s most successful and best-loved artists – performances that also often feature some of Elton’s actual costumes, bought from his ‘Out the Closet’ sales!
Paul is able to draw on this amazing catalogue of hits to create a dynamic and powerful live celebration of Elton’s music. Featuring classics like ‘Candle in the Wind’, ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’, ‘I’m Still Standing’, ‘The Bitch is Back’ and ‘Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting’ – as well as other live favourites, the band creates a truly spectacular and professional show – The challenge is often not what to play, but what to leave out!
Paul as Ultimate Elton received the ultimate accolade recently when he was asked to perform with his band at the 90th birthday celebrations of Elton John’s very own mother – Sheila Fairbrother. Among the guests which included close friends, relatives and celebrities was Kiki Dee who sang the classic “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ with Paul and the band. Paul says, “It was a fabulous night, and one I’m sure we will remember for many many years!”
Ultimate Elton is much in demand at festivals and theatres throughout the UK and beyond. They are certainly one of the top tribute acts working on the circuit today and this has recently been recognized at the recent National Tribute Awards, run by the influential ‘The Agents Association’ of Great Britain, who awarded the band ‘Official UK No 1’ for performances as the ever popular Elton John Band!
