The Elton John Experience is widely reputed as one of the best Elton John tribute bands globally and Greg Andrew is regarded as one of the best in the world at his craft. In 2017, Greg Andrew 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.
For Greg Andrew, it was the song, Candle In The Wind that first impacted him and inspired his love of Elton. “The beautiful piano melody I can remember learning when I was a kid,” says Greg. “As a young kid learning classical piano and then going on to the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, there are certain parallels you could say with Sir Elton. It is an incredible honour and privilege to perform these iconic songs, and have the audiences react the way they do.”
ROCKETMAN – FLYING SOLO will feature hits from Elton’s back catalogue as well as classic songs from the early years. With familiar tracks such as Candle In The Wind, Daniel, Honky Cat, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me and Crocodile Rock to name a few, combined with Broadway hit such as The Lion King, and songs that lend themselves beautifully to the solo format that are not performed as a band, it will be a spectacular evening from start to finish.
Joined onstage by Daniel Gibney on percussion and vocals, Greg Andrew looks forward to exchanging that love and energy of Sir Elton John with audiences. “This show and these songs will give you the up close and personal Elton Experience,” says Greg.
