Elton John – Deutsche Bank Park – May 2022 – Frankfurt, Germany
Our STAGEHANDS supported the Frankfurt CREW during the load-in and the load-out at the Deutsche Bank Park including the STAGEHANDS CREW and our FORKLIFT DRIVERS. The big show in Frankfurt was one of the hundreds of events we have been working on since the SEASON 2022 started.
The famous Elton John attended the crowds at Deutsche Bank Park during his last concert in Frankfurt. The world-famous Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour is the top course for the superstar, who is set at 75 years of residency.
The show formed part of Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which saw him begin in Allentown, Pennsylvania on 8 September 2018 and will take in over 300 concerts worldwide, finishing in 2023.
Elton John will join Pearl Jam and Duran Duran as headliners for the capital’s concert series, which is set to return in summer 2022 after having two years off.
This is more than just a tribute – from the extensive costumes, to climbing on the top of the grand piano just like the man himself, this is a recreation of one of the most loved performers of any generation, Elton John.
A trained jazz pianist, Gerald Brann, has been a lifelong Elton John fan and his admiration and love of music comes shining through as he plays one hit after another with remarkable likeness to the pop music icon. Brann and his talented five-piece band evoke audience participation throughout the entire show – whether singing along to „Rocket Man“ and „Your Song“, swaying to „Candle in the Wind“, or hopping and bopping to „Crocodile Rock.“
With an unprecedented nod from the man himself, Gerald Brann was granted permission to use Elton John’s own orchestral scores to perform with the Augusta Symphony Orchestra. In addition, Brann and Yellow Brick Road have been endorsed by Hercules, the International Elton John Fan Club, and have played extensively throughout the world to rave reviews.
Universally regarded as one of the most significant singer-songwriters of all time, Elton John has contributed countless additions to the pop music canon, from his earliest international hit “Your Song” to the mid-career jam “I’m Still Standing” to his 1997 multi-Platinum double single “Something About the Way You Look Tonight”/”Candle in the Wind.” When Elton John was forced to pause his record-breaking Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in 2020, he went on to release an album, The Lockdown Series, with more than 20 collaborators, including Dua Lipa, Teyana Taylor, Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus and more. Whether you attend a residency show in Las Vegas or you see the Elton John farewell tour on the road, this incredible musician brings a spectacular stage presence and decades’ worth of familiar sing-along songs to every venue he visits.
