MASTER SHOWMAN Sir Elton John and his five-piece band will be gracing our shores for a one-night concert at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre at 8pm tomorrow. It is part of his northern Asian tour that includes Taipei, Seoul and Shanghai. Although now a pop icon, Sir Elton started out playing classical piano and studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He rocketed to fame in the late 1960s with his first American hit Your Song. He has composed chart-topping hits such as Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word and Rocket Man, and has sold more than 150 million records worldwide over the past four decades. In Hong Kong, Sir Elton will perform some of his greatest hits as well as a few songs from his soon-to-be released album, Peach Tree Road. Tickets at $1,690, $890 and $490 can be purchased through HK Ticketing on 3128 8288. PERCUSSION CLINIC Percussionist Kozo Suganuma - The King of Many Strokes - will demonstrate his amazing techniques at a clinic presented by Tom Lee Music. The demonstration will be held today at 9.30pm at Hard Rock Cafe in Tsim Sha Tsui. A native of Osaka, Suganuma began playing drums at the age of eight and turned professional at 15. He is now one of the most sought-after drummers and has performed with such famous groups as Chage and Aska, as well jazz icons Hidehiko Matumoto and Kazumi Watanabe. Suganuma has so far released six albums with his band Fragile. An autograph session will be held after the demonstration. Tickets at $60 (which includes a standard drink) are available at the door.
