On Thursday, May 26, 2005, Madejski Stadium will host its first concert by a major international artist.
That's none other than Elton, according to the December 2, 2004 Reading Chronicle. Tickets will be 35, 40 and 60 pounds, with a limited number of premium ones also available. They will be available on Tuesday, December 14 at 9 a.m., but supporters of the Royals have a head start on December 9 at 9 a.m.
Elton already has strong ties with the area. He helped create the Gus Dudgeon Foundation, where just weeks ago, an educational recording facility at the Reading College of Arts & Design opened.
