Having just cleared five years of rocking last month, ROCK BAND continues to unite music gamers and families as the platform expands weekly with fresh tracks available for ROCK BAND BLITZ and ROCK BAND 3. On December 18, a trio of songs from ELTON JOHN hits the Rock Band Music Store. Harmonix got in touch with The Rock Father to deliver the full details, and I’ve got that posted for you below.
Rock Band DLC Additions for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system and Wii™
Winner of six Grammy Awards and countless other accolades, singer-songwriter Elton John is the definition of a living music legend. On December 18th, three of the entertainer’s songs will be available on the Rock Band Music Store as singles or as part of the “Elton John Pack 01”!
One of John’s most rocking tracks, “The Bitch is Back,” from 1974’s Caribou, kicks off the pack. The sweeping ballad “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” the first single from Caribou, will also be available. Finally, the uptempo “I’m Still Standing” – which originally appeared as part of the soundtrack for Rock Band Blitz, available now on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation®Network – will be available as a single for the first time.
These hits and more are also available as part of Elton John’s greatest hits compilation, Rocket Man – Number Ones!
Additionally, during the week of the release of “Elton John Pack 01,” Rock Band Blitz players will earn double Coins any time they play any of the three tracks from the pack!
