POP ICON’S FIRST FULL BAND PERFORMANCE IN LINCOLNSHIRE FOR 40 YEARS He is one of the most recognizable, most decorated and bestselling British artists of all time, and once again Elton John will perform on British shores, having announced a string of huge dates in June next year – including a very special show at the Lincolnshire Showground on June 10th.

Having given over 4000 performances in a career spanning more than fifty years, Elton said:

“The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family, and I am only too aware of just how precious the time ahead is. My sons are growing up so quickly; their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them. So these concerts will give me the chance to thank the British audiences who have been so faithful to me over these many decades. We cannot get to everyone but I am going to try. And Lincoln is an important stop on this tour – my life long writing partner, Bernie Taupin, grew up very close to Lincoln so it’s a sort of homecoming, and one that is long overdue. I hope to see you all there.“

On having Elton coming to perform, Jayne Southall, CEO of the Lincolnshire Showground said:
“We are absolutely delighted that Sir Elton John has chosen Lincoln and the Lincolnshire Showground to host his concert. This is fantastic news both for the Showground and Lincolnshire”.

The Lincolnshire Showground is a major national venue and one of the largest in Lincolnshire – just 30 minutes by dual carriageway from the A1, the M180 and intercity connections to London. Airport connections are just 45 minutes away. 

The Showground hosts events for ten to tens of thousands of visitors that attract more than 300,000 visitors each year, including business conferences, corporate meetings, weddings, private parties and balls, music concerts, equestrian events and vehicle rallies.
