It is impossible to sum up the career of Sir Elton John succinctly. But suffice it to say that he is a part of Britian’s musical heritage forever more. He would first garner fame as a singer way back in 1962. And his outlandish personality would embody the “glam rock” era of the 1970s. What’s more, he has over 300 million worldwide record sales. Not to mention having more than fifty hits to make the Top 40 in the UK charts, many of which would reach #1.

Now, Elton John is preparing to wind down his touring days. On that note, his extensive farewell tour will shortly resume. And this gives fans one final opportunity to see him live. But for those who can’t wait that long, The Rocket Man provides the full Elton John tribute experience.


Jimmy Love is the man in the famous spectacles and the bright coats. Now, Jimmy has more than 26 years in his own right as a tribute performer. But while he plays many stars, none shine brighter than his portrayal of Sir Elton. And he gets to reprise this role as part of The Rocket Man. So, for those who attend live, you will discover why Jimmy Love is the perfect man to lead this performance.


Liverpool’s Empire Theatre is a true mainstay of the city, ever since the venue’s initial opening in 1866. But a demolition of the original Empire would lead to the modern Empire opening in 1924. From there, the Empire would become a focal point for the UK’s top touring theatre shows. Indeed, so many iconic productions regularly come to Liverpool’s Empire Theatre. Furthermore, the list of performers to grace the Empire stage over the years reads like a who’s who. In addition, the Empire’s location is pivotal, with its positioning directly in front of Lime Street Station. The Empire has a total capacity of 2,381, with frequent sell-outs throughout the annual theatre calendar. Simply put, the Empire Theatre is amongst the UK’s top entertainment venues and an ideal backdrop for a classic night of theatre.


The tour begins at Corn Exchange in Newbury on July 16 2021. From there, it moves onto Leeds’ Millennium Square and also The Marina Theatre & Cinema in Lowestoft. Then, it moves onto Liverpool’s Empire Theatre on October 24 2021. Subsequent stop-offs include Brighton, Epsom, Sunderland, Dundee, Wakefield and Bury St. Edmunds. Furthermore, the show visits Lytham St. Annes, Dartford, Bridgwater, Stoke-On-Trent, Harrogate, Peterborough and Huddersfield. Finally, the show concludes at York’s Grand Opera House on July 1 2022, with further dates and locations awaiting confirmation.
