A mural of Sir Elton John has been unveiled at Watford FC grounds this month ahead of his concerts.
The 30-foot mural came ahead of the Rocketmans homecoming shows at the Vicarage Road ground on July 3 and 4.
Attendees of the stadium will see the mural of the club’s honorary life president painted in Watford FC’s yellow and black kit painted by street artist MurWalls.
Sir Elton played a key role in some of Watford’s most legendary years as the club rose through the English football leagues, culminating in a second-place finish in the top division in 1983, an FA Cup final in 1984, and a memorable trip into European competition. Elton served as the club’s chairman during this time.
Discussing the upcoming concerts, Elton said: “I love the club so dearly and have had some of the best days of my life in those stands. These shows are going to be so incredibly emotional, and to spend them surrounded by my fellow Watford fans will be wonderful. We’ve been on quite the journey together.”
