Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band - 31 January 14
Tracey Hamilton, Hawthorne Theatre Reviewer
Had the pleasure of seeing Ultimate Elton and the Rocket Band last night at Hawthorne-Theatre Hawthorne-Theatre and what a fantastic show it was.
The band was introduced on stage by Stuart Epps who had worked with the real Elton, he stated 'quite simply the best Elton tribute you will see or hear anywhere' and he was not wrong.
'Elton' then came on stage in a pink suit and silver sparkly shoes with an umbrella!
The choice of songs spanned 40 years of albums from ballads such as candle in the wind to the upbeat I'm still standing and crocodile rock which got the audience on their feet and clapping along .
The show was in 2 halves with a break in between and was worth every penny, there was plenty of introductions to the songs and banter with the audience.
The Rocket Band were fab and also deserve great recognition .
Please do try to see this tribute act as they are certainly one of the best I have seen and would be great if they would return to Hawthorne Theatre again!

A blast. Saw the Ultimate Elton & The Rocket Band tonight. Unsure initially as this is our first ever tribute band show.Our fears are unfounded as they were very good and entertaining. They warmed up after the second song - Rocket Man ending with the audience dancing to Elton hits like Crocodile Rock, I'm Still Standing, Pinball Wizard and many more. The Elton doppelganger is impressive with his voice and mannerism. Great band too. Worth a visit.
