As Tom's Elton Tribute, Tom performs all Elton John's hits, 100% live, solo or with his band. Tom has an unparalleled love of Elton's music, rhinestone encrusted tailoring and wearing sunglasses at night. In contrast to most of the modern day music industry, Tom plays with no backing tracks or lip-syncing at all. Indeed as Elton himself put it, "I think everyone who lip-syncs on stage in public when you pay like 75 quid to see them should be shot". Tom's Elton Tribute will be touring the show, The Rocket Man Experience, in the US, UK and Europe in 2024.
