Local promoter Allstars.by announced today that the Symphonicity concert previously scheduled for June 27th in Minsk will now take place in Vilnius.

And Elton John is already raving about his duet: "...It's great, really fantastic. He [Matthew] sings great on it. It's a medley of 'Mona Lisas and Madhatters' going into 'Rocket Man'..."
