Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as 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.

A lifelong Elton John fan, Paul first started singing and performing Elton’s songs whilst studying Performing Arts at University in the early 1980’s. With an extraordinarily similar singing voice to Sir Elton’s, Paul is able to draw on an amazing back catalogue of hits to produce a truly wonderful celebration of Elton’s music. Paul’s performances often feature some of Elton’s actual clothes, bought from his ‘Out the Closet’ sales.

Elton John’s extraordinary repertoire means that Ultimate Elton can serenade an audience with some of the most beautiful ballads ever written, including Your Song, Candle in the Wind, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me, Sacrifice and Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word. He can also change the pace and get people on their feet with classics like Crocodile Rock, I’m Still Standing, The Bitch is Back and Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting. Ultimate Elton’s challenge is often not what to play, but what to leave out!

Christmas & New Year Box Office Opening Times 2019-20

"Having been Elton John's manager for 28 years, I was absolutely flabbergasted when I saw Paul walk out to take the stage, momentarily believing it was Elton himself, and when he started to sing I was even more convinced. I defy anyone to not believe that Paul Bacon is "the Ultimate Elton" tribute artiste."

John Reid (Elton John's Manager)

"Looks great and sounds great...The best tribute that I've seen!"

Bob Halley (worked with Elton John for over 30 years)

"Blimey, he's got it down, band are great too... fantastic"

Clive Frank, (Elton John Record Producer and Elton's live sound engineer for over 35 years)
