Sir Elton John Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour
Feb. 6-7
Pepsi Center, Denver
Powdered wigs, feathers, grapefruit-sized glasses and enough sequins to costume a small country—Sir Elton Hercules John (real name Reginald Dwight) has always been his own creation. The man and his piano, along with lifelong lyricist Bernie Taupin, have produced more than 30 albums, including 50 Top-40 hits, and sold 300 million records. And now, after 50 years of touring, the consummate performer is bidding the stage adieu. John’s farewell tour is a long and winding one (three years, 20 countries). Don’t miss your last chance to see the Wizard.
