2007 duet at Elton’s charity party
Dame Shirley’s friend Sir Elton John performed a magnificent concert in Tenerife on 24th January.
At the Costa Adeje Golf, a world class club that has hosted the Spanish Open.
A big ampitheatre was built on the driving range to hold a reported audience of over 40,000.
They had originally planned for an audience of 25,000.
Elton was on stage from 9:00pm to 11:40pm on top form.
“It was quite amazing, two hours 40 mins without a break. Even the band at times went for a break but not Elton. He just took, in all that time, the smallest sip of water from a small cold flask.”
“The first part had a lot of new songs but then it got going with the famous”Saturday” and all the old ones.”
Elton has a full year ahead with a season at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, many charity events and other concerts including Mercedes Benz World, Surrey in July.

Check out the lady that is banging on the stage at the beginning of the song at about 1:03.
If you watch Shirley’s eyes, it looks like the lady got her attention
