Elton John is back on our shores, kicking off his round of his 2023 NZ concerts at Christchurch’s Orangetheory Stadium.
It was a big night for everyone including the members of The Breakfast Club who were able to tag along in the crowd.
Their night pales in comparison to one lucky concert goer though, who went home with something very special.
The Breakfast Club caught up with Kim to chat about her new concert ‘trophy’.
Lana got straight to it, saying to Kim, “You got to take something different home last night. Tell us about it”.
Yeah, I got a drumstick from Nigel
In a magical mid-concert moment, Elton’s drummer, Nigel Olsson, walked up the stage ready to release the piece of memorabilia.
We were standing up the front, [...] and he came along and he was, like, throwing his drumsticks out
Although there could have been a little bit of confusion, there were a lot of people in that crowd so it is not hard to think that people would have been fighting to get their hands on the prize.
he pointed at, I think it was me. And there was a lady beside me and he threw it. We both grabbed it.
Elton still has two more shows to go here in Aotearoa, and Lana was already on the front foot wondering, “do you think they'll probably do the same thing in Auckland?”
Oh, I would imagine. I don't know. Well, yeah, right. Yeah
Who knows, but if you do manage to get right up the front at Mt Smart Stadium, keep your eyes peeled for stray drumsticks!
As for Kim, this is definitely going to be one piece of memorabilia she will cherish for a long time to come.
I'm going to frame it
