Elton John vs Pnau recently released the ‘Good Morning To The Night’, a collaboration produced by Pnau. The album is a reinvention of the early 70s classics of Elton John.

The Elton John show on November 16 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre will feature a set with Pnau. It will be the only performance together of Elton and Pnau performing songs from ‘Good Morning To The Night’.

“About five years ago when I was on tour in Australia I went to a record store in Sydney where I found the Pnau album. I bought it and fell in love with it, so I got in touch with Nick and Peter from Pnau and met them for coffee the next day. Some time later they left Australia and came to London, and now my company manages them. As soon as they arrived in England we started talking about Pnau doing a remix album using my early material. Basically I gave them free rein to go through all the master tapes and select whatever they wished.”

“Like all these things it’s about waiting for the right combination of circumstances. We didn’t give Pnau any sort of deadline on this project, but this summer seemed like a great time to release the album. And obviously it was, because the album went straight to Number One – my first UK number one album for 22 years!”

“In July I was invited to appear with Pnau at the Ibiza Rocktronic 123 Festival. Although it was an incredibly young audience, I was very surprised and happy to hear them all singing along to Your Song before we had even started playing the dance music. That set the tone for entire show and it was an amazing night. I am hoping members of the Sydney audience will be equally enthusiastic when they come and see me play Good Morning To The Night with these two very talented Aussies.”

2Cellos will perform with Elton on all shows.

Elton John dates are:

November 12, Perth, Perth Arena
November 14, Canberra, Canberra Stadium
November 15 and 16, Sydney, Entertainment Centre
November 18, Melbourne, Rod Laver Arena
November 20, Launceston, Silverdome

I wasn’t quite prepared for the “strap in and enjoy the ride’ experience of Kraftwerk. I hadn’t seen them live since the Big Day Out of 2003. It was still light when they came in, in the tent (not the outdoor stage) and they were wearing suits. Someone at the time commented that it was like watching four businessmen in the Qantas Club sending emails to each other.
