Will Young joins Elton John on stage
Special guest Will Young will perform a duet with the legendary Elton John at Elton’s New Year’s Eve Party – Live from the O2 arena, to be aired on ITV1. TV viewers will have front row seats to this exclusive event and unique musical collaboration.
Will says: “I’m honoured to be asked to duet with Elton – and on New Years Eve, the biggest party of the year!”
Elton says: “I can’t wait to spend New Year’s Eve with 17,000 of my biggest fans along with millions of ITV viewers at home. I can’t think of a better way to see in 2009.”
Elton provides the ultimate soundtrack for the biggest party night of the year. Also performing on the night, and riding high after her triumphant win, will be The X Factor’s Alexandra Burke.
The show has been conceptualised and designed by acclaimed photographer and good friend of Elton, David LaChapelle. It’s a visual masterpiece that expresses the ups and downs of Elton’s extraordinary life, making it a personal journey for both him and his legions of fans. Viewers will be able to see a true legend on stage performing many of his greatest hits with his usual flamboyance.
Malcolm Gerrie, chief executive of Whizz Kid Entertainment, said: “Last year’s live event from the 02 was a huge success for all involved and this year’s show with Sir Elton John will be the biggest and most glamorous party of the year.”
What better way to kick off the New Year with what promises to be the best show in town!
