I'm Still Standing – The Music of Elton John is a musical celebration of the legendary 50 year career of Sir Elton John featuring all of his greatest hits performed by the outstanding Joel Buckingham, backed by an amazing live band.
No show about Elton John would be complete without the outrageous outfits and glasses which have become a signature of his live shows from the early 1970s right up to the modern day. Elton John's unique blend of pop and rock styles turned him into one of the biggest icons of the 20th century.
Joel Buckingham takes on the task of recreating the Elton John live experience. Joel was born with a similar timbre to his voice and just like his hero began piano lessons as a child. He has performed worldwide as Elton John including packed houses at venues as prestigious as Alexandra Palace.
Joel performs with one of the hottest bands in the UK comprising hand-picked musicians at the top of their game and there is an evident camaraderie in both their playing and performance on stage. The show features both live and studio arrangements of Elton John's performances carefully arranged by experienced Musical Director Martin Bentley.
The show is further enhanced by strong imagery throughout, aided by the use of projections both on the screen and even the piano itself. Recreated audio snippets add to the atmosphere of each decade and combine with the visuals to set the perfect backdrop for each era of Elton John's long career.
The show takes you through an incredible legacy of great songs and music and features all the hits including 'Crocodile Rock', 'Rocket Man', 'Candle in the Wind', 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart', 'Sacrifice', 'Daniel' and 'The Circle of Life'.
