Elton John – Critic’s Pick

Elton John
8:00 p.m. November 24 @ Chaifetz Arena

Elton John has been a musical superstar for almost 45 years now, but it is in his live show that he shines the brightest. An entertainer through and through, John always manages to deliver a high-energy show, even while still chained to his piano. And the Grammy-winning entertainer is nothing if not prolific; he’s had more than fifty songs in the Top 40. With hits like “Bennie and the Jets,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” “Tiny Dancer” and “Rocket Man,” he and his longtime writing partner, Bernie Taupin, have penned some of the most beloved and enduring songs in the history of popular music. Though he’s 66 years old, the icon still tours at full power, bringing along a full band on this tour (which includes backup singers and strings) and playing for nearly three hours.
