TRIBUTE Artist, Paul Bacon both looks and sounds like his idol, Sir Elton John.

Rapidly established as the foremost Elton John tribute act in the UK, Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band present an uncannily accurate reproduction of the classic live shows of one of pop music’s most successful and best-loved artists. Performances often feature some of Elton’s actual costumes, bought from his ‘Out the Closet’ sales.

Paul as 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.

Yeovil Express:

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 said: “It was a fabulous night, and one I’m sure we will remember for many many years!”

Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band are one of the top tribute acts working on the circuit today and the band were awarded ‘Official UK No 1’ for performances at the National Tribute Awards.

The band are coming to Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre on May 17 at 7:30pm and tickets are available from their Box Office, the Taunton Visitor Centre or online at tacchi-morris.com.
