Elton’s summer ball rolled on July 1, 1999. And despite reports of financial problems, everything was smelling of roses in England. Even the flowers for Elton’s party at Woodside – which cost £30,000 – were paid for by OK! Magazine.


The party bill was £150,000. Elton invited stars including George Michael, ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell actress Catherine Zeta Jones, Michael Douglas, Sean Connery, and Sir David Frost. Guests stumped up £1,000 for their tickets.
