Although Elton's tee-total these days, for anyone else who is attending the concert in Sheffield on December 9, 2002, a nice gift awaits!
Opposite the Sheffield Arena is a pub called "Brannigans"; from 3.00 pm on concert day they are holding an Elton John Day to coincide with the concert.
If you show your ticket you get a free cocktail! It's non stop Elton John music until you leave for the concert!
