Elton John and his band will be performing LIVE at The 3aaa County Ground on Sunday 4 June, and tickets at all prices are still available for this fully-seated outdoor concert. Tickets start from £40.
In celebration of Elton John and Bernie Taupin’s 50th anniversary of their songwriting partnership, here is now your chance to unleash your creativity, by making music videos for Bennie and the Jets, Rocket Man and Tiny Dancer.
Entries are officially opening to the public on January 9, 2017.
Music video entries for each of the songs will feature different artistic elements – submissions for Rocket Man will feature animation, Tiny Dancer will be live-action, and Bennie and the Jets will feature choreography.
Together with a panel of YouTube creators and celebrated music and industry judges, Elton John and his writing partner Bernie Taupin will select three winners, and those winning entries will premiere on YouTube in the summer of 2017.
