ELTON JOHN ANNOUNCED AS FIRST RECIPIENT OF ‘BRITs ICON AWARD’

Inaugural show of prestigious music award to be broadcast in September on ITV

BPI, the body that represents UK music companies, has announced the creation of a major new Award which will recognise the very highest level of British music achievement - the BRITs Icon Award.

The BRITs Icon Award will become part of the established family of BRIT Awards, but will be celebrated at a separate stand-alone event each year. It will be presented only to iconic artists whose writing, recording and performances set them apart as having made a lasting impact on the nation's culture.

BPI is delighted to announce that the first recipient of the prestigious BRITs Icon Award will be Sir Elton John, CBE.

Sir Elton John, CBE, comments: “It’s a tremendous honour and a real thrill for me to have my work acknowledged in this way, and I’m really looking forward to participating in what promises to be a very special occasion.”

With a live performance from Sir Elton of some of his best-loved songs as well as new material from his forthcoming album The Diving Board, combined with a candid interview and special guest appearances, the show will be a spectacular tribute to his remarkable journey to become a revered British musical icon.

Enjoy the BRITs ICON AWARDS from the best seats in the house; indulge in pre-show Champagne and canapés in the VIP Bar served by our Red Coated Butlers.

Event to be recorded for television and will be broadcast on ITV. There will be no Interval.
