Special guest to open Banks's Stadium show...

ELTON John, undoubtedly one of the top-selling solo artists of all-time, has announced that very special guest, Bright Light Bright Light, will join him for his forthcoming live shows.

Bright Light Bright Light is set to open the show here at Banks's Stadium in June.

Bright Light Bright Light is the moniker of Rod Thomas, a Welsh-born, New York and London residing electronic-pop artist. Referred to as 'Completely Irresistible' by Alexis Petridis of The Guardian and 'A songwriter of extraordinary dexterity' by the Sunday Times Culture with his dream-like and club friendly blend of music.

“When I was growing up in the Welsh Valleys, hearing Elton’s music on the radio, TV, in films, in shops and cafes, I always wondered what it would be like to travel the world and play music. I never dreamed that one day I’d be doing it with the same person who shaped so much of my musical landscape. He’s an inspiration – musically and as a person.

"Nobody else goes out of their way like he does to help new musicians. So many people owe their kickstart, or at the very least a lot of their optimism, to his tireless love of music. And getting to watch his set every night after I play is the best reward in the world!”

Undeniably one of the most acclaimed and adored artists of all time, Elton John’s spectacular stage shows are sought after by audiences worldwide. Since his career began in 1969 he has played more than 3,500 concerts in over 80 countries.

The tour will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from throughout his incredible five-decade career. We are delighted to welcome Sir Elton here in Walsall on Saturday, June 13th.
