In 1977, Bernie Taupin and David Nutter's Elton: It's A Little Bit Funny was published.
It chronicled the pop vocalist's year-long Louder Than Concorde, But Not Quite As Pretty world tour.
The title has been borrowed for a one-man homage to the Rocket Man. Elton John: It's a Little Bit Funny runs from October 15-17 at Wiltshire's Salisbury Playhouse. The production then heads to the Corn Exchange Auditorium in Newbury, on the 29th and 30th of the month.
it tells the story of Elton's rise and fall--and rise again--as one of the most successful singer/songwriters ever. Martin Kaye, who has portrayed Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet, sings and plays Elton and Bernie Taupin's songs, and also narrates what's described as a tall tale of an extraordinary night in Las Vegas, when he bumps into the star.
He provides a sampling of what to expect on his Facebook page, and admits it's been a challenge to find theatres where it's financially viable to do the show in a socially-distanced matter.
