About this live music event
There will never be another like Elton John!
The Flaming Sambucas (extended band), with Terry Nicholas at the Grand Piano, pay tribute to the timeless songs of Elton John/ Bernie Taupin – Candle in the Wind, Rocket Man, Philadelphia Freedom and so many more.
The genius in the music is one thing, but the love and kindness of the man is another.
You will be moved as The Flaming Sambucas take you on a musical and ‘big screen’ journey from Elton’s beginnings – performing this wonderful soundtrack to our lives whilst also telling this incredible love story along the way. Complimented with stunning costumes, the Grand Piano, a mix of vocals from Natalie Ermer, Heidi Rilstone and Shelley Pantic, Matt McNamee (drums) and Tzan Niko (guitar), this is a fully produced show – not just a concert.
Over an exciting career (beginning in 1991), Adelaide’s iconic Flaming Sambucas have entertained at 1000’s of events – nationally and overseas. The Flaming Sambucas have appeared at the Adelaide “Carols by Candlelight” on a number of occasions, entertained at countless national travel industry events, and have also taken their shows on the road to audiences as far away as Mexico, Thailand and Hong Kong. To enter the theatre world was the best move the Flaming Sambucas made. And by developing their ELTON JOHN Tribute Show and also their ABBA GOLD Show, that was made possible. The band is lead by founder members Terry Nicholas (Piano/vocals) and Heidi Rilstone with vocalists Natalie Ermer and Shelley Pantic, Rob Pippan (guitar) and Matt McNamee (drums).
