For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed the sound of Elton John’s voice across the stereo. My earliest memory was being 9 years old and listening to Candle in the Wind performed for Diana, England’s Rose, a song that still brings tears to my eyes; the happy memories of Circle of Life from the Lion King; not to mention the favourites of Tiny Dancer and Blue Eyes. Living in the Whitsundays, I did not think my opportunity to hear Elton John live would be anywhere outside of the big smoke. But on the 22nd of September, I had the opportunity to be out, under the stars just south of the Whitsundays to hear Elton John perform live to an audience of 15,000 fans. He played all the favourites, along with a few newbies. We sipped wine and enjoyed being outdoors for a concert that was a dream come true. What a night!
