Afford client, Mark Tassaker, has been a fan of Elton John for many years. Recently, he was able to achieve his goal of attending some live concerts – including the realisation of his dream to see his favourite artist, Elton John, live in concert.

Mark lives in an Afford supported accommodation home in Penrith, New South Wales. He has been an Elton John fan for a long time.

One of Mark’s goals is to get out in his community, including at live concerts. So, when Mark learned about the famous musician’s planned world tour, including a stop in Australia, he got excited. Then, when he learned it was the 70-year-old musician’s last ever tour before retirement, he knew he had to go!

The tour is named Farewell Yellow Brick Road. The tour started in September 2018 and will finish in July 2023. It consists of more than 300 concerts worldwide, including concerts in Sydney and Melbourne.

Mark was able to attend the concert in Sydney on Wednesday 18 January 2023. It was held at Allianz Stadium. Mark went to the concert with an Afford lifestyle assistant, Nancy. They had dinner at a restaurant before the show, and Mark bought official Elton John merchandise at the concert.

Mark had a great experience at the concert. He got upgraded seats at no cost, had a brilliant view, and loved singing along to the music. Mark said it was “ten out of ten!”
