A Peek At The Aberdeen Gig

Tuesday 22 June 2004 @ 0:04 - GMT

Elton ''wowed'' the crowd and the heavens at Pittodrie Stadium on June 18, reported the next day's Daily Record.

As he leapt on stage, the rain stopped, and a big rainbow appeared. Elton was colourful too, wearing red-tinted glasses and red shoes as he opened with The Bitch Is Back.

Backstage, the decor consisted of white, cream and blue furnishings. A total of nine rooms in the main stand were redecorated just for the singer and his entourage.
