It will be Sir Elton's second appearance at Ischgl. He was the first star in the Tirolean resort's now famous season closing concerts in 1995 when his grand piano was flown in beneath a helicopter. The lunchtime concert, as with his first, will be at Idalp, at the top station of the main gondola from the village. Concert-goers just need a lift pass to get up to the venue at 2320m. The concert is on the last weekend of the ski season at Ischgl, with the slopes open for the last day Sunday, May 4. "We are very excited to have signed Sir Elton to perform his second concert at Ischgl – he is one of the world's biggest stars and Ischgl has once again shown that our resort is a world stage featuring the biggest names. It will be a fabulous concert and a great way to round off what is proving to be a fantastic season with wonderful snow for our skiers and boarders," said Ischgl Tourist Director Andreas Steibl. Ischgl's ski season got under way with a sensational concert by U.S. singer Rihanna in December. Last season saw top acts Melanie C, Scissor Sisters, and The Pussycat Dolls; previous stars included Lionel Richie, Rod Stewart, Pink, Tina Turner, The Sugababes, and Bob Dylan.
