Elton John Show goes live on Magic AM’ers

Magic stations in the North of England are to broadcast a live performance from Elton John when he appears at a new arena in Leeds.

Elton John: Home Again on Magic will see the AM stations provide a devoted two-hour special to mark the release of his new album and let listeners experience his only indoor UK show of 2013 on the radio.

Hosted by Magic Radio’s evening show presenter, Ray Rose, the programme will feature Elton John classics as well as his new single, ‘Home Again,’ and live tracks exclusively recorded from the performance on 4th September.

The station is giving away Elton John CDs and tickets to the gig, which is set for Monday 16th September at the First Direct Arena.

Owen Ryan, Group Programming Director, Bauer Media Place Portfolio, commented: “We are delighted to offer our listeners the chance to get closer to the star with an exciting programme featuring exclusive, live content.”

Sir Elton John said: “It is difficult to believe that it has taken so long for such a large conurbation to get its own arena, but it has certainly been worth the wait. I am delighted to have been invited to be one of the first artists to perform in what will be a wonderful new venue. I recently played to incredible audiences in North Yorkshire, but this will be the first time I have played Leeds since 1984 when I played at the Queens Hall, so I am really looking forward to playing to the City of Leeds once again.”

Ben Martin, Head of Marketing, Marshall Arts Ltd. (Promoters of Elton John Live in Leeds) said: “As one of our core media partners, we wanted to offer Magic Network North something very special to help strengthen the message of Elton’s first performance in Leeds for nearly 30 years. Magic embraced the idea and built an entire month long promotion around the broadcast on September 16th which will tie in with the release of his new album The Diving Board.”
