Chugg Entertainment yesterday announced that Sir Elton John will perform a second Sydney concert on Friday, November 16 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.

The concert will also see Australian dance duo Pnau (Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes) join John on stage to do tracks from the recent Elton John VS Pnau album, Good Morning to the Night.

The collaborative album took the number one spot on the UK Album charts upon its release.

“About five years ago when I was on tour in Australia I went to a record store in Sydney where I found the Pnau album,” John said in a statement.

“I bought it and fell in love with it, so I got in touch with Nick and Peter from Pnau and met them for coffee the next day. Some time later they left Australia and came to London, and now my company manages them.

“As soon as they arrived in England we started talking about Pnau doing a remix album using my early material. Basically I gave them free rein to go through all the master tapes and select whatever they wished.”

Good Morning to the Light is the first UK number one album for John in 22 years.

“In July I was invited to appear with Pnau at the Ibiza Rocktronic 123 Festival. Although it was an incredibly young audience, I was very surprised and happy to hear them all singing along to Your Song before we had even started playing the dance music. That set the tone for entire show and it was an amazing night,” he said.

“I am hoping members of the Sydney audience will be equally enthusiastic when they come and see me play Good Morning To The Night with these two very talented Aussies.”
