The Story Behind "Sisters"

Elton John gave his only UK concert to top the bill at the 1995 Equality Show in the Royal Albert Hall. That was a fund raising benefit show to help a gay pressure group.

"We rehearsed weekly (in Aldgate) without Elton John who was then touring the States. It was arranged that he would fly in and out on the day of the concert (a Sunday) via Concorde and we would rehearse with him from noon at the concert venue" explained one of the members of The Pink Singers Choir, about the show.

Elton performed in drag and joined and ducted with Kylie Minogue for this fantastic duet, a version of Andrew Sisters' song. He completed his set with "I'm in Love With a Wonderful Guy" and "There is Nothing Like a Dame".
