Last year, Elton addressed projects he would like to do in the future.
One idea was to re-team with percussionist Ray Cooper. This is great news for French fans, since the two have opted (at least for the time being) to play dates in this country.
The venues are to be the Zénith Nantes Metropole, on September 24, the Galaxie d’Amnéville on the 26th, the Palais des Sports de Grenoble on the 27th, and the Palais des Congrès de Paris on October 2.
Besides Elton, the Hertfordshire-born musician has worked with the likes of Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr and Bryan Ferry.
He has also been involved in films, producing and performing music in several of Terry Gilliam’s productions, and playing small roles.
