Elton John to perform at Mayan ruins
IANS Monday 25th January, 2010
Legendary British musician Sir Elton John is following in the footsteps of opera greats Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo with a performance at the archaeological site of Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza in Mexico later this year.
The singer-pianist will be taking to the stage there April 3, singing in the same spot as Pavarotti did in 1997 and Domingo in 2008, reports contactmusic.com.
British soprano Sarah Brightman also performed at the historical attraction last year.
Local reports in December last year suggested the concert could be derailed as a result of the recent excavations at the foot of El Castillo pyramid there, but Yucatan state officials have confirmed the show will go ahead as planned as the stage will be set on the opposite side of the great pyramid.
