Written by Chief Editor.

As noted previously by EJW, the Rocket Man will soon be performing in Madrid.

He'll be at the inaugural Universal Music Festival, running from July 20-27.

The label, in tandem with Spanish management/entertainment companies LaRock Entertainment and Concert Tour, will also offer entertainment from Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Juanes, Raphael, Miguel Poveda and flamenco act El Barrio.

The fest takes place at the Teatro Real, a 1,700 seat venue usually used for opera, ballet or classical music.

Elton opens the event with his “Solo Piano Show” on July 20.
