Music megastar Sir Elton John will be performing at the home of Ipswich Town Football Club on Saturday night but how well do you know the legend?

Are you a Rocket Man when it comes to the life and times of the iconic singer? Or would you end up breaking Sir Elton’s heart?

The Grammy, Tony, Oscar and BRIT award winner is performing at Portman Road as part of his worldwide Wonderful Crazy Night tour.

It is the first time he has visited the region since performing at Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium nearly three years ago.

Sir Elton last performed at the home of the Blues in June 2004.

Ian Milne, Ipswich Town managing director, said: “We are delighted here at the club to be hosting one of the biggest entertainers in the world in Sir Elton John.

“I’m sure it will be a fantastic occasion for the thousands who will be at Portman Road on the night.”

Gates open at 5pm and the crowds will be entertained by singer/songwriter Jake Isaac ahead of the main event.

There is no park and ride service operating for the concert but extra train services have been put on.
