Elton John: Fatherhood may have slowed him down somewhat, but at the age of 68 Elton John remains one of the most bankable stars in popular music. The master showman's extraordinary repertoire covers everything from soul, disco, country and classic pop balladry. As the title of the tour suggests (All the Hits), this is a celebration of decades of chart-topping songs. Don't miss this chance to catch the bona fide British national treasure live in concert.

November 24, 8pm, Convention and Exhibition Centre, 1 Expo Drive, Wan Chai, HK$488-HK$2,388, HK Ticketing. Inquiries: 2712 4268

 

Miriam Yeung: One of the best-loved voices in Canto-pop returns with a fresh crop of songs and a spectacular stage production to showcase them. Fans can also expect a high-energy gallop through some of her greatest hits.

Boundless Multimedia Series: "Missing" by Gecko: Projections, puppetry and dance combine in this inventive project from UK-based physical theatre company Gecko. With the aid of atmospheric lighting and a fragmented plot, it tells the story of a young woman suffering from an identity crisis and makes for an unsettling but thought-provoking work.

September 11-12, 8 pm; September 13, 3pm, Sheung Wan Civic Centre, 345 Queen's Road Central, Sheung Wan, HK$220-HK$280, Urbtix. Inquiries: 2268 7323

 

Voces, Suite Flamenca: Sara Baras is a towering figure in the world of flamenco. And the Spanish star's latest offering is an emotion-charged tribute to some of the greats of the art form. She is joined on stage by a small ensemble of six and backed by an excellent group of musicians and singers, but Baras is the undisputed star as the show builds to a spectacular free-form finale.

September 25-26, 8pm; September 27, 3pm, City Hall, 5 Edinburgh Place, Central, HK$180-HK$520, Urbtix. Inquiries: 2268 7323
