Elton John Tribute Show Concert Impersonator Greg Andrew
  • Elton John Experience Greg Andrew

GREG ANDREW is
Australia's Rocketman

When it comes to performing the music and having the look of Sir Elton John, there are few that embody the presence and uncanny likeness quite like Greg Andrew. He owns the stage, channels the music, and has audiences believing it could really be the man himself! With his virtuosic piano playing, combined with his vocal timbre, it is no surprise that Greg is internationally recognised as one of the best Elton John tribute artists in the world.

The Elton John Experience is known for paying homage to the great music of Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin. They have performed a hugely successful run of shows, both in Australia and overseas with performances in over 30 countries and to a collective audience of over 500 000 people.

“I feel that the music Sir Elton John & Bernie Taupin have written together over the course of 50 years in many ways, has been like growing up with a life long friend, who has been there all the way! It is incredible to think that they have written so many songs together that are timeless and multi generational. I see with audiences, there are grand parents, parents and young adults who come and enjoy the show. Even though the 70’s was an incredibly creative time for Sir Elton & Bernie, 20 years later, there were kids growing up with The Lion King soundtrack,” says Greg. “In this show, there’s something for everyone. I would call this a celebration of Sir Elton John and his music, and his incredible legacy that is the Rocketman.”

The Elton John Experience is widely reputed as one of the best Elton John tribute bands globally and Greg Andrew is regarded as one of the best in the world at his craft. In 2017, Greg Andrew became the first and only Elton John tribute artist worldwide to be invited to perform at the biggest and most prestigious tribute artist festival in the world, called TRIBFEST UK, held annually in Yorkshire, England.

Channeling the music of Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin, who have inspired Greg from the beginning, along side his 6 piece band who are world class, this show is one of the most authentic reproductions of an Elton John concert you will see.

“For Greg Andrew, it was the song, Your Song that first impacted him and inspired his love of Elton. “The beautiful piano melody I can remember learning when I was a kid,” says Greg. “As a young kid learning classical piano and then going on to the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, there are certain parallels you could say with Sir Elton. It is an incredible honour and privilege to perform these iconic songs, and have the audiences react the way they do.”

The Elton John Experience will feature hit after hit from Elton’s back catalogue. With tracks such as I’m Still Standing, Saturday Nights Alright For Fightin’, Candle In The Wind, Daniel, Honky Cat, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me and Crocodile Rock to name a few, it will be a spectacular evening from start to finish. Greg Andrew and the Elton John Experience band look forward to exchanging that love and energy of Sir Elton John with audiences. “This show and these songs will give you the ultimate Elton John Experience,” says Greg.
