This Web site has previously reported that Elton is to receive a unique candy when he plays Blackpool on June 16.
The one-off rock, filled with champagne flavouring and glitter with ‘Rocket Man’ running through the middle, is made by Coronation Rock.
Sarah Rhodes, of Marketing Blackpool, has informed EJW that her company commissioned the making of the limited edition rock last week. A ”giant stick” is to be presented to the pop icon upon his arrival, while an additional 350 smaller sticks of the collectable rock are being made to commemorate the occasion, ”but they will only be available to VIP ticket holders.”
There are still a limited number of tickets available to experience this special occasion in luxury ”fit for Sir Elton himself,” says Sarah, ”so if you want to be a VIP for the day and get your hands on a stick of Elton Rock, you need to act now.”
As well as premier seats for the concert, the VIP package also includes fine food, champagne and the chance to sample some of Blackpool’s attractions.
The package offers an afternoon and evening of entertainment including a VIP champagne reception as well as entry to Madame Tussauds, the Blackpool Tower Dungeon, Tower Eye and 4D experience.
To get a VIP ticket costing 165 pounds per person, dial the booking hotline on 01253 478100.
