It's official; organizers announce the return of Elton John to Lubbock. KCBD NewsChannel 11 first broke the news last week that Elton John will be in Lubbock in April.
Although no stranger to Texas, this will be the first time in ten years that Elton has played a concert in Lubbock. The concert will take place on Friday, April 9, 2010, 8:00 p.m. at the United Spirit Arena. Elton and his band will perform their ‘Rocket Man –the Greatest Hits Live' concert, featuring number one chart hits and classic album tracks from throughout Elton's incredible five-decade career.
Elton's band comprises Davey Johnstone on guitar, Bob Birch on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums and Kim Bullard on keyboards. One of the most successful live acts on the road today, Elton and his band put on the kind of show you never forget: the entire audience standing, dancing and singing along with much-loved classic songs such as "Your Song", "Daniel", "Rocket Man", "Bennie and the Jets" and many, many more.
Kent Meredith, Director of United Spirit Arena said, "Elton John was the first act in the United Spirit Arena and it's exciting he is returning during our tenth anniversary. It is difficult to find someone that generates as much excitement as he does. His music transcends generations. He is one of those rare performers that appeals to so many different age groups."
