Your Monday is about to get a whole lot more exciting! Circuit of The Americas (COTA) has just announced that in addition to all the unparalleled on-track action, FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™ guests will enjoy a post-race concert by Sir Elton John along with his full band on Sunday! That’s right. THE. SIR. ELTON. JOHN.
As one of the beloved artists of our time, his spectacular stage shows are attended by audiences around the globe, and this year at the FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX™ race fans will enjoy an incredible two-hour set featuring all of the iconic hits and classic album tracks spanning Sir Elton’s spectacular five-decade career on the new festival lawn located in the circuit's north infield.
Accompanying Elton on stage will be his band featuring, Nigel Olsson on drums, part of Elton's original three-piece band, as well as musical director Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band full-time a year later) on guitar, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.
Grammy Award-Winning, Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer, and Knighthood
As one of the most acclaimed artists to grace Circuit of The Americas during the Formula One™ weekend, fans are in for a real treat! Among the many awards and honors bestowed upon him are five Grammys, a Grammy Legend award, a Tony and an Oscar, a Best British Male Artist BRIT Award, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Kennedy Center Honor, Legend of Live Award, 12 Ivor Novello Awards and a knighthood from HM Queen Elizabeth II for “services to music and charitable services.” Elton John is truly a knight in shining (bedazzled) armor.
Elton has recently been named the first recipient of the BRITs Icon Award, which recognizes the very highest level of British music achievement, presented only to iconic artists whose writing, recording and performances set them apart as having made a lasting impact on the nation’s culture.
