Elton John To Sing To Sold-Out Arena

Elton John To Sing To Sold-Out Arena
Posted by DFO

The Inland Northwest has enjoyed a long and happy relationship with Elton John. At least, John should be happy with it, from a box-office standpoint. His show tonight at the Spokane Arena sold all 11,000 tickets in three days. And that includes the seats behind the stage. In fact, every time, Reg Dwight (yes, that’s his real name) has appeared in the region, the tickets have gone rocketing out of the box office. This will be the fourth time Sir Elton has taken the stage in the Inland Northwest/Jim Kershner, SR. More here. (AP file photo, of Elton John in concert in Germany)

Elton John wows the crowd

 Sir Elton delivered.
 Nearly 9,000 people packed the Civic Center on Wednesday night to see Sir Elton John and his band perform for the first time in Bismarck. And they were not disappointed.
There were a few open seats here and there. But for the most part, the fans did not need them - most were on their feet throughout the show that ran nearly three hours.
Ross Horner, marketing director for the Civic Center, said the concert was the highest grossing concert ever at the venue, bringing in nearly $800,000.
"Feedback from the promoter and Elton's people was that Bismarck was a great host and we may see him back sooner rather than later," Horner said.
John opened the concert with his classic "Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" from the 1973 double album "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." Following that up with "Saturday Night is Alright for Fighting," John had the crowd - whose members ranged in age from 8 to 80 it seemed - enthralled.
For fans, many of whom came donning big glasses, feather boas and other "John-like" apparel, the hits kept coming. After several cuts from his latest album, "Union," a collaboration with Leon Russell, he closed with three show-stoppers, "Bennie and the Jets," "The Bitch is Back" and "Crocodile Rock."
John returned for an encore, "Your Song," but not before signing autographs for those up front.
Country music star Willie Nelson is up next at the Civic Center April 15. Only about 3,000 tickets were available for that show. About 600 tickets remain for the concert, which will be a small, intimate theater setting.

The good news for Elton John fans is that tickets to his April 19 concert in La Crosse are available at many Internet sites. The bad news? Some tickets are on sale for more than $700, five times their face value.
After tickets sold out in a few hours March 14, it’s buyer beware, said Art Fahey, La Crosse Center director
“The secondary sites, some of them are more reputable than others, but I can’t vouch for anyone,” he said.
Some tickets were reserved for production holds, and they could be released and go on sale, Fahey said. But he doesn’t know when, “and there won’t be many.”
The best way to check for face-value tickets, he said, is to keep a watch on the site, which is the official online ticket outlet for the La Crosse Center.
La Crosse was caught off guard by the Elton John ticket frenzy, Fahey said. He is the biggest act ever booked here, and previous big acts, such as Metallica and Aerosmith, performed in La Crosse in the 1990s before the center partnered with
“The speed of the Internet probably surprised everybody,” Fahey said. “The speed of what we sold (for Elton John) was entirely different.”
In the ’90s, people would have bought tickets at the box office or from ticket outlets in the area. Selling tickets then was much more drawn-out, and Fahey said it would have been impossible under that cumbersome process to sell out in a few hours as the Elton John concert did March 14.
“It’s a totally different world of what we’ve jumped on now,” Fahey said.

He’s ba-a-a-ack! Elton John in concert

Elton John

Larger-than-life entertainer Elton John is pretty much inescapable. Not only is he constantly in the news — hosting “SNL,” adopting a baby, chiding bands who don’t let their music be used on “Glee” — he also pops by for an Idaho visit every now and again.
Consequently, many concertgoers headed to Taco Bell Arena on April 9 know exactly what to expect: pomp, energy and terrific showmanship. John, 64, will bring a full backing group, just as he did when he played there in 2006.
Also, be aware: Although Leon Russell has been joining John at select concerts to perform material from 2010’s “The Union” album, that isn’t the case for Boise. The plan is just John and hits, hits, hits. And this time, when the crowd sings “Saturday! Saturday!” — it really will be Saturday.
