March 2017 It is with great sadness that I am announcing my retirement from the Music bizz. Having had a great 26 year career not only performing as Elton but well known as one of the best Meat Loaf Tributes out there for 18 years it really has been a great run, There have been great highs and also some great lows!
I want to thank all my fans and friends for their support and love shown towards me . The main reason for quitting whilst still singing as good as ever is I have gone back to my faith , as a Jehovahs Witness I cannot carry on living a double life and i am putting Jehovah first. Everyone can surely see that this planet has gone from bad to worse and these truly are the last days as foretold in the bible. We are very near Gods Kingdom ruling the Earth and life everlasting on a paradise Earth is truly the desire of everyone, its not a god given right , it has to be earned . Theres a lot more to Dean Torkington than singing! . If theres anything I can leave you all with, its that you look into the bible and the truths in their! You have all been lied to by christendom with false teachings and lies and false religion has truly blinded everyone . We are deep in the last days and Jehovahs Kingdom is very close . Thanks again and Love and best wishes Dean x

March. Recently did the Elton John Show and Legends Of Rock show to players and officials at Leeds United Football Club. Playing to a packed crowd at the 1000 seater Conference Suite/Exhibition Centre the Elton Show went down a storm, so much so I received a telephone call from the Chairmans Personal Assistant to Ken Bates thanking me for a great night and asking me for more dates. Apparently he dosent normally dance at functions but was on the dance floor with his wife on Your Song and Sacrifice! Ken Bates was also former Chairman for Chelsea Football Club .
