Elton John rockets back to Spokane Arena

Posted By on Tue, Apr 29, 2014 at 9:04 AM

He’s back! Sir Elton John will perform at Spokane Arena on Sept. 17 as part of a 10-city tour.

This time he’s on an All the Hits tour — as if he didn't play all of the hits before. Many of these big singles, like “Bennie and the Jets” and “Candle in the Wind,” come from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, just re-released in honor of the album’s 40th anniversary (yes, it has been that long). Rolling Stone, in all of its wisdom, even gave the reissue a 5-star rating. And why not? Over the course of his five-decade long career, John is one of the best-selling solo artists of all time, racking up Grammys, an Academy Award, a Tony and an induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In short, he’s a living legend.

For those who can’t make it down to Las Vegas to see his The Million Dollar Piano show, now is your chance to watch him tickle the keys and belt out all your favorites. After all, at 67, the Rocket Man has still got it.

Tickets start at $29 and can be purchased starting Monday, May 5, at 10 am.
