Much like John, Shilkin’s musical abilities have been a lifetime’s work.

Aged just four he began studying piano with the sisters at North Perth’s Sacred Heart Convent.

About a year later, he started signing in the synagogue choir.

Both started a life-long music passion, which continues to this day.

After a career performing from the piano bar to the arena, Shilkin is excited to bringing John’s hits to life.

“To have the opportunity to perform this repertoire is a bucket list dream come true,” he said.

“Whether people are fans of Elton or not, these songs are intrinsically linked to our entire pop culture zeitgeist.”

The show will combine story and music for what should a great performance for audiences.

Harvey Shire president Paul Gillett said he was excited another musical tribute was coming to the region.

“We recently had the talented Karen Knowles visit the centre to provide an amazing tribute to some of Australia’s biggest music stars,” he said.

“Tributes like this are always a favourite with our community as it provides us with an opportunity to reflect on great memories we have of these artists and their music.”

The performance will take place at the HRCC on June 22, with guests to receive a complimentary light lunch.
