The music legend Elton John returns to Thailand

The music legend Elton John returns to Thailand on December 13, 2012 at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani, Bangkok Thailand. Sir John and his band perform here to celebrate 40 years since his top hit Rocket Man was launched. Forty years ago, in April 1972, Elton John released the single Rocket Man (I Think It’s Going To Be A Long Long Time) which went on to great chart success and received critical acclaim worldwide. The single entered the UK charts on April 22, reaching the number 2 position and staying on the chart for 13 weeks. In the USA the single entered the Billboard chart on May 6 and reached the number 6 position, staying in the US chart for 15 weeks. These were the highest positions achieved so far by an Elton John single in the UK and the USA. To celebrate the landmark 40th anniversary of its release, Sir Elton John is taking the celebrations globally for a world tour with Thailand as one of the stops. Photo: EPA
