It may have been a long, long time, but Sir Elton John will touch down in Ipswich tomorrow night for a sun drenched performance at Portman Road.
The legendary singer, who has penned a myriad of hit singles, including Rocket Man, Your Song, Benny & the Jets and Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me will bring his Wonderful Crazy Night Tour to thousands of fans in Suffolk’s county town.
It has been 13 years since he last performed in Ipswich.
Doors open at 5pm and fans have been warned extra security measures will be in place in light of the recent terror attacks in London and Manchester.
There will be bag searches and a visible officer presence in and around the football ground, including armed police.
Concert-goers have been urged not to take large bags, and only take a small bag along if necessary.
