Elton John at the Eden Project

The excitement is building as Cornwall prepares to welcome one of the biggest names in rock to its biggest music venue, the Eden Project, tonight.

It will be the first time Sir Elton John has performed in Cornwall in 30 years, so it's no surprise the event's 6,000 tickets were snapped up in minutes when they went on sale last December.

He's at the Eden Project for two nights as part of the attraction's summer session of concerts.

We'll be at Eden live tonight, bringing you all the excitement from what is set to be one of the highlights of the Eden Sessions' 13-year history.

The excitement is building as Cornwall prepares to welcome one of the biggest names in rock to its biggest music venue, the Eden Project, tonight.

It will be the first time Sir Elton John has performed in Cornwall in 30 years, and it's no surprise the event's 6,000 tickets were snapped up in minutes when they went on sale last December.

He's at the Eden Project for two nights as part of the attraction's summer session of concerts. Last time it was the Cornwall Coliseum, which has since been demolished.

We'll be at Eden live tonight, bringing you all the excitement from what is set to be one of the highlights of the Eden Sessions' 13-year history.

Sir Elton joins an illustrious list of more than 70 acts who have performed here since they began in 2002.
