We are thrilled to announce that Elio and the band have been asked by Sky Sports to feature in their month-long TV and online coverage of The Ashes cricket tournament with a specially re-written version of Billy Joel’s ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’.
Last week, Elio and the band took time out from their busy UK tour of ‘The Billy Joel Songbook’ to spend the day doing something rather different.
The band descended on the Sky Sports studios in South London to record and film the reworked version of ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’, featuring lyrics that cricket fans the world over will associate with – maybe even sing along to!
The advert will run right up to the start of The Ashes on July 8th, starting tonight when it will be played during the Champions League final on Sky Sports. However, if you can’t wait till then, Sky Sports have the advert featured on their website, so you can watch it online by clicking here.
If you’re on Twitter and want to follow the conversation going on about the advert and Elio and bands involvement, you can do so by using the hashtag #myashessummer.
If this whets your appetite, you should get along to one of the remaining shows of ‘The Billy Joel Songbook’, currently touring the UK. To find out if the show is coming to a place near you, please click here.
