Asuncion, Mar 7 (EFE).- As promised, British music icon Sir Elton John served up an intimate performance for his first-ever concert in Paraguay.
John gave his band the night off, appearing alone on stage with his piano before some 5,000 fans gathered in a courtyard at the Yacht y Golf Club Paraguayo, just outside Asuncion.
"Hello, Paraguay. I'm very happy to be in this beautiful country," he told the crowd before launching into "The One," followed by a score of hits such as "Tiny Dancer," "Candle in the Wind" and "Rocket Man."
