One of Elton John’s favourite party bands will be coming to St Albans later this month to play a concert in aid of the Odyssey Cinema project.

The Overtures are due to appear live at the Alban Arena on Friday, January 17 at 8pm.

First choice band of rock stars at their parties, they have performed for ‘Rocket Man’ Elton John five times.

Ringo Starr, Sting and Elvis Costello have also called upon their services.

“They’re just the best band of their kind in the world,” said Elton John in GQ Magazine.

Tickets cost £18 and all profits will go towards the restoration of the old Odeon Cinema in London Road, to transform it into the luxurious Odyssey.
