One of the UK’s most accurate tributes to Sir Elton John is set to entertain pop lovers at the Eastbourne Bandstand on Saturday, June 8.

Expect to hear all the hits from Jimmy Love and his band.

A spokesperson said: “Sir Elton has sold more than 300 million records worldwide, and holds the record for biggest-selling single in the UK and US, with his 1997 version of ‘Candle in the Wind’. He is now touring his three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road world tour, bringing his 50-year career to a close.”

On Friday, June 7, Paul Reason and his band offer a spot-on tribute to Robbie Williams. The winner of Stars in Their Eyes 1995, this tribute offers all the hits, as well as the moves and mannerisms that make Robbie the star he is.
