Croon Elton John's hit tunes while watching his life story dance across the screen.
When Rocketman first hit the big screen a couple of months back, it immersed viewers in the glitz and glamour of Elton John's 70s-era rise to fame, while also delving into the darkness, drinking, drugs and depression that came with it. Starring an exceptional Taron Egerton and directed by Eddie the Eagle's Dexter Fletcher, the vibrant biopic also leaned into its genre — never stepping through Sir Elton's early years in a straightforward way, but instead turning his life into an expressive, fantastical blend of song, dance and spectacular musical numbers.
A couple of things were always going to happen afterwards. We still predict that Rocketman will end up reaching the stage as a live production; however, until that eventuates, fans can now sing along with the movie in a cinema. Given the film's huge soundtrack, spanning everything from the titular track, 'Tiny Dancer' and 'Honky Cat' through to 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart', 'Your Song' and 'I'm Still Standing', there's plenty to croon along to.
Sure, Elton might think that Saturday night's alright for fighting, but every night from Friday, August 9 through until Wednesday, August 14 is also mighty fine for heading to a Rocketman Sing-Along session. Tickets prices vary depending on the venue, but wearing sequins, glitter and the most over-the-top glasses you can find is obviously recommended.
