The Evening Express plans to give away free Elton-style gold star glasses, reported the paper on June 14, 2004. More details will be announced this week.
Meanwhile, about 1,000 letters will be sent out to residents near Pittodrie Stadium. It will warn them about disruptions and ask for their understanding when Elton appears there on June 18.
The venue's safety manager John Morgan explained that floodlights will be on later than normal and there will be parking restrictions. But he believes noise won't be a problem.
''Technology is so good these days that the sound will hit the audience rather than carry outside.''
