Pop legend Elton John is to play his first concert in north Wales.

The gig at the Eirias Stadium in Colwyn Bay, will take place on Saturday 6 June 2015.

Before then he is touring Europe as well as having a four-month stint in Las Vegas, and then will return to the UK to play at six venues.

Welsh singer Tom Jones played at Eirias Stadium in July this year, while Olly Murs and Pixie Lott have also previously appeared at the venue.

John said: "While this will be my first show in north Wales, I have always been knocked out by the reception I have received in Wales ever since my first show there in June of 1976, and I am certain this will be just as memorable."
