A man has been assaulted and another arrested at Elton John's Carrow Road concert.

Following the rocket man's Norwich gig on Wednesday, June 15, police are investigating an assault in which a man was punched in the head and suffered minor injuries.

Both incidents happened while Sir Elton was playing his piano and belting out the hits, with the assault taking place shortly after he begun at 7.30pm, and the drunk and disorderly man arrested at 9.30pm as the concert was coming to a close.

Sir Elton arrived in Norfolk at 2.50pm when his Bombardier Global Express 6000 jet touched down at Norwich Airport. 

Doors opened at 4.30pm, when fans were able to take their seats to eat and drink before Sir Elton arrived on stage at 7pm.

The singer then played a career- spanning set featuring some of his most well-known tracks such as Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting and I'm Still Standing.

Fans of the flamboyant pop star had a long wait for the gig after it was rescheduled due to the Covid pandemic.
