Elton John is the latest celebrity fan of Cavan band The Strypes. The youngsters have recently signed up with John's management company and the legendary singer took this opportunity to see his new assents in public for the first time.

John popped into the 100-capacity Fitzherberts Pub in central Brighton to see the band play live, accompanied by his security staff.

Elton John is just another celebrity fan, with people such as Ryan Tubridy, Glen Hansard, Jeff Beck and Paul Weller already singing the praises of the teenage group.

The Styrpes recently signed a huge multi-album recording contract with Mercury Records.
