There can be no doubt that Elton John is a music icon, but there have been many icons in the music industry who after four decades on the road, lose the ability to hit the notes and kick out their hits like they use to. No need to worry, when Elton comes to Peterborough in the summer this won’t be an issue.

It’s Advent and with the run up to Christmas now officially begun, music will play an important part in the festivities over the coming weeks with the return of all those hits from bygone years - and hopefully some new ones too.
