Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as Sir Elton John does both! Close your eyes and you won’t believe your ears, open your eyes and you won’t believe them either! You simply won’t find a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.
Rapidly established as the foremost Elton John tribute act in the UK, Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band present an uncannily accurate reproduction of the classic live shows of one of pop music’s most successful and best-loved artists - performances that also often feature some of Elton’s actual costumes, bought from his ‘Out the Closet’ sales!
With an extraordinary career spanning over 5 decades and with more than 50 ‘Top 40’ hits and over 30 albums to date
- Elton John is the single most successful solo artist ever! - Not too many performers can boast album sales of well over 250 million! The band is able to draw on this amazing catalogue of hits to create a dynamic and powerful live celebration of Elton’s music. Featuring classics like ‘Candle in the Wind’, ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’, ‘I’m Still Standing’, ‘The Bitch is
Back’ and ‘Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting’ - as well as other live favourites, the band creates a truly spectacular and professional show - The challenge is often not what to play, but what to leave out!
Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band are much in demand at festivals and theatres throughout the UK, Europe and beyond. They are certainly one of the top tribute acts working on the circuit today and are a three times winner of the prestigious National Tribute Awards, run by the influential ‘The Agents Association’ of Great Britain.
Just wanted to say a big Thank You for the gig on Saturday at my party. You were sensational and everyone was just amazed and enjoyed it all so much. Do say a big Thank You to the lads for me for doing such a good job. They really are great musicians and you all deserve a lot of praise and good fortune…everyone loved you all and are still raving about it all. Best wishes to you and the band” Sheila Farebrother (Elton John’s Mother)
“I was at the real Elton’s first rehearsal with Nigel and Dee before his first gigs back in the 70’s. This band has all the raw energy of that early line up. Quite simply the best Elton tribute you will see or hear anywhere!”
Stuart Epps, Record Producer.
“Blimey, he’s got it down, band are great too. How are his tantrums?”
Clive Franks, Elton John Record Producer and Elton’s live sound engineer for over 35 years
“Looks great and sounds great...The best tribute that I’ve seen!” Bob Halley, worked with Elton for over 30 years

Please follow social distancing guidelines at all times and pay attention to any one way systems arranged around the venue.
Due to the intimate nature of the venue standing tickets will likely not be available for our shows in the near future, however we are looking into ways to revisit this when the time is right and when we can provide space for standing guests in a safe and socially distanced way.
Please note our doors open at 7pm. Tickets are non refundable however in the unlikely event a concert is cancelled, a refund will be offered or a credit note issued.

For the safety of all our guests and staff please read the following safety policy. We are implementing the below measures during a trial period of 3 months for all of our upcoming events between 1st August and 31st October.
We have spent the past few weeks discussing becoming 'vaccine only' with both concert-goers and bands and have had overwhelming support for our approach, so we hope you will find our announcement a relief, and for those of you who do not agree with our policy we hope you understand that our decision has been made in the spirit of safety.
We very much look forward to the time when things can return to normal and that we can welcome everybody back without these precautions.
If the above works for you...we look forward to seeing you at the show!
You simply won’t find a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.
