Elton John Leigh tickets go on sale

Tickets to see Sir Elton John play at one-off show in Leigh next year go on sale at 10am today.

The performance at Leigh Sports Village on Saturday, June 21 is one of three UK dates that the singer will play in 2014 and the Leigh date is set to be his only north west performance.

Sir Elton said: "I have been all around the world and I truly enjoy playing my music for fans everywhere I can, but I do so look forward to coming back home to England, especially every summer when I get to perform in places I have never played before, like Leigh."

"Simon Toon, chief executive of Leigh Sports Village, said it would be a 'once in a lifetime occasion'. "He is excellent to watch so I hope the people of Leigh and from the borough on the whole will come and support us and Elton."
