SIR Elton John kicks off his farewell tour this weekend.

Here is all you need to know about his final show in Sussex today, at the County Ground in Hove.

Door times

Doors open at 4pm. Elton is expected on stage at about 6.20pm. There is no support.

Road closures and bus diversions

Sussex County Cricket Club said there will be just one road closure. Eaton Road, Hove, adjacent to the County Ground, will be closed between 10am and 4pm between Selborne Road and Palmeira Avenue.

The road will also be closed from 8pm until midnight between Wilbury Road and Palmeira Avenue. It will be a manned closure, meaning residents will be allowed through but other traffic will be diverted.

Brighton and Hove Buses said the only diversion will be the 21a, which will go via Holland Road, Palmeira Square, Church Road and Tisbury Road.


No “large bags or rucksacks” are allowed into the venue.
