A longtime fan has received an honour from Sir Elton himself.
Ricky Stephenson was at his 200th Elton John concert last Saturday, when Elton dedicated Your Song to him.
The 57-year-old says that being recognised by his idol as he stood in the front row of Blackburn’s Ewood Park was one of the best days of his life.
“My wife Rae had a banner made and we kept being shown on the big screen - the crowd were loving it,” he told the Lancashire Post.“Then Elton noticed us--but I couldn’t believe it when he dedicated ‘Your Song’ to me. It made me feel brilliant, I felt like a celebrity that night.”
Besides seeing Elton in England, Ricky has gone to see concerts in New York, Paris and Brussels.
