FILE - In this file photo of Sept. 11 2009 Elton John salutes the audience during his performance at the Piedigrotta festival in Naples. The European Union ordered Italy Friday Nov. 19, 2010 to repay it close to $1 million in EU funds used to stage an Elton John concert. The European Commission says Italy had no right to use EU funds for the 2009 concert in the city of Naples. EU spokesman Ton van Lierop said EU money can be used to promote culture but not if that means staging a one-off rock concert. "We have asked for our money back," he added.
