Host Elton Finds A Way To Enjoy Soccer Standoff

Soccer-mad singer SIR Elton John will wear a radio earpiece throughout a swanky party at his home tonight (24JUN04) - so he doesn't miss ENGLAND's crucial EURO 2004 match.

The ROCKET MAN superstar is a keen supporter of the team - led by his personal friend DAVID BECKHAM - and was horrified to discover their quarter final clash with host nation PORTUGAL was the same night as his party.

So, in a bid to keep up with the evening's events, Elton will host the annual White Tie and Tiara Ball at his Windsor, south England estate with an ear piece in.

He explains, "I just can't have a TV because the setting has been perfectly designed and planned.

"I'm going to have to walk around the event with a small ear piece on. It's just worked out like that."
