Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ as Greg Andrew pays homage to Elton John in this special two-hour concert experience.
Rocketman Flying Solo celebrates the golden anniversary of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and sees Greg’s show stripped back, intimate, up close and personal that is built on the hits and format of Sir Elton John’s own solo touring show. Greg has carefully curated a songbook of hits that includes ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’, ‘Bennie And The Jets, ‘Candle In The Wind’, ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Daniel, ‘I’m Still Standing’, ‘Crocodile Rock’, and ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’, to name a few.
“In this show, there’s something for everyone,” says Greg. “I would call this a celebration of Sir Elton John and his music, and his incredible legacy that is the Rocketman.”
Andrews is an internationally renowned Elton John performer with performances spanning over twelve years, in over 30 countries and to a collective audience of over 500 000 people. He is widely reputed as one of the best Elton John tributes globally and in 2017, he became the first and only Elton John tribute artist worldwide to be invited to perform at the biggest and most prestigious tribute artist festival in the world, called TRIBFEST UK, held annually in Yorkshire, England.
He also starred in a cameo role in the 2023 Australian romantic comedy-drama film, Seriously Red, which follows a realtor as she pursues a new career as a Dolly Parton impersonator.
Andrews, combined with his effortless melodic skills and his reputation as a virtuosic pianist, embodies an uncanny likeness to the Rocketman himself and promises blindingly accurate and faithful recreations of Elton’s greatest hits.
“Sir Elton always made the audience feel like every show was their show and I’m no different,” says Greg.
