Apologies for forgetting last week, but Reginald Dwight turned 70 last week. You probably know him better by his alter ego Elton Hercules John.
So, to belatedly celebrate, here’s five Elton John songs for you
FIVE SONGS BY ELTON JOHN
1. I’m Still Standing
2. Made In England
4. Can You Fee The Love Tonight?
5. I Want Love
Switzerland Squared has announced a new headliner, Walking On Cars. They’re ok. If you love The Coronas or Kodaline, this will be your thing. I hoped to see them when they supported Ellie Goulding at Belsonic last year but they were on too early. Hopefully, there’ll be more CHSQ headliners announced.
The latest in acts I like announcing tours but not doing Belfast – Pet Shop Boys and Paul Weller.
The timetable of Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival was launched yesterday. I haven’t had a chance to properly look through the programme yet. You can do so here.
I’m already going to The Divine Comedy and Rich Hall.
Ryan Adams update. Still looking for a ticket for Ulster Hall in September. Standing, Fave Value. Ta very much.
And finally, RIP Brian Pern. Singer. Actor. Entertainer. Father. Husband. Snail Welfare Campaigner.
