as previously announced,
I have decided to discontinue
updating eltonfan.net as of March 31, 2017
... for various reasons. The website will remain online for at least a
few more months, but it won't be updated anymore. So feel free to use
it as an archive
for news, tour
dates & reviews, charts and a lot more.
The Hercules Message Board
will also remain active for now, but please be prepared for it to shut
down at some time in the future when the site will be taken offline.
Apart from the official
website eltonjohn.com, most of
you get their Elton news from various other sources these days,
including Facebook, Instagram and other Elton (fan) sites.
You might also want to consider
subscribing to the excellent news service by devoted Elton fan Wayne
Martin - just drop him an e-mail
if you are interested.
I have been running
Hercules (formerly known as Rocket Fan) for almost 30 years now, that's
far more than half of my lifetime. It
all started with an old-fashioned (analog) printed fanzine in 1988
before we entered the digital domain by launching eltonfan.net back in
1997. It has been a wonderful journey and I am thankful that I was
allowed to experience it, but now it
is time to move on and to focus on other things.
There is still the
possibility that another fan will take over this domain to continue the
work, but that is likely to be in the form of some sort of re-launch.
For now, I would like to thank you all for your
loyalty over all those years
and don't worry, I won't quit being an Elton fan, so I might see you at
a concert or other kind of Elton related event in the future.
P.S. My Elton sale
is still running ...
